Legal Answers
Q. In the state of Florida is there such a thing as alimony been in a relationship for 40 years not married
A: You will need to redirect your question to an attorney licensed in Florida.
Q. Is Mississippi a Property Title State in Divorce? The spouse who holds title to any property, retains the property?
A: Mississippi is an equitable distribution state. The name on the title does not determine who will ultimately end up with the property. The Court will look at the Ferguson factors to make the determination.
Q. Can I be adopted without parental consent?
A: No. You cannot put yourself up for adoption, and you cannot be adopted without the consent of both of your parents, unless a Court has terminated their parental rights.
