appearance for Appellee.
B. Stover (Father) appeals the trial court's final
judgment of injunction for protection against domestic
violence with minor children. Specifically, he contests (1) the
trial court's determination that the evidence warranted
an injunction, and (2) the trial court's award of
exclusive timesharing to Ashley M. Stover (Mother). We affirm
the first issue without comment. As to the second issue, our
record indicates that the injunction has expired and the
timesharing award is no longer in effect. Thus, we cannot
grant Father any effectual relief, and the second issue is
moot. See generally Merkle v. Guardianship

("An issue is moot when the controversy has been so
fully resolved that a judicial determination can have no
actual effect." (quoting Godwin v. State, 593
So.2d 211, 212 (Fla. 1992))).
