Week of November 7, 2011

Hernandez v. Fronter:  4th DCA  11/9/11:
It was error for trial court to permit such an extended and delayed repayment of child support arrearages. ($20 a month to satisfy $18,499.75 arrearage would have resulted in payments until child was 29).

Wu v. Xing: 3rd DCA  11/9/11:
Final judgment of dissolution was insufficient as a matter of law.  Trial court had awarded sole legal ownership of the marital home to one party (the parties' only significant asset) without articulating specific findings of fact, based on competent substantial evidence, to support this award as required by 61.075(3).

Wright v. Wright:  1st DCA  11/9/11:
A judgment of dissolution of marriage that reserves jurisdiction over integrally related issues, although titled a final judgment, is not a final appealable order.

The Florida Supreme Court has adopted new/amended forms for use in Family law cases as follows:
12.913(a):  Notice of Action for Dissolution of Marriage
12.913(b):  Affidavit of Diligent Search and Inquiry
12.913(c):  Affidavit of Diligent Search
12.913(a)(2):  Notice of Action for Family Cases with Minor Child/Children
