Q. Have a petty theft going to trial third one what am i looking at realistically as to the outcome of this
A: Every case is different depending on the facts of your specific case. If you are charged with a Petit theft, your maximum exposire is one year in the county jail and a $1,000. fine. Florida allows for enhancement of petit theft charges to a felony if you have prior petit thefts. If you are represented by an attorney you should consult with him/her regarding your specific case. If you do not have an attorney, you should have representation prior to any trial.
Q. Can I divorce on grounds of abandonment?
A: Unlike other states, Florida is a "no fault" state when it comes to divorce, meaning courts don't require a reason to grant the divorce such as adultery or abandonment. The standard to grant a divorce is "the marriage is irretrievably broken." Therefore after consideration and attempts to reconcile, if a party desires a divorce, a petition for dissolution is filed with the appropriate court.
Q. Is it possible to have my probation terminated early without paying court fees?
A: Motions for early termination of probation may be granted by the court under several scenarios. The most common is termination at the halfway point of probation. Probation may also be terminated early upon completion of all conditions of probation. It should be noted that each county, and each judge within that county have different views on when probation should be terminated early. Unless there is a financial crisis, many courts will require that court fees be paid prior to granting a motion for early termination.
Q. Which motion to file after receiving failure to appear and warrant?
A: Motion to withdraw warrant or capias should be filed with the appropriate court.
