  • Hi I have been married for a little over 2 months now and I want a divorce! What do I need to do? Help please!

    He has become really controlling and Im not happy anymore. He is a totally different person now..

    Kairi’s Answer

    You need to file a Complaint for divorce in the county that you live in. If you all live in different counties you need to file in the county where your husband lives. Filing the divorce complaint will get the process started. My office offers free consultations, give us a call and we will be more than happy to explain the process to you. Best of Luck!

    they live in GA the wife lives in NY and because of her religion she can't file for divorce but will not contest it where does the divorce need to be filed the marriage took place in NY but he has been living in GA for years now

    Kairi’s Answer

    If his wife is willing to consent to jurisdiction and venue he can file the divorce in the Georgia county that he lives in. If she will not sign the consent documents to do so he would have to file the divorce in the appropriate New York venue.

  • I got a DUI in GA where i live but i have a SC drivers license. I fulfilled my obligations for GA and I am just waiting for my

    suspension to be up( 2 months). Will I have to redo the classes in SC and wait another 6 months as they say to get my license back?

    Kairi’s Answer

    It is possible that the state of South Carolina imposes additional requirements to have your drivers license reinstated that you would have to comply with, because laws very from state to state. You may want to speak to a South Carolina licensed attorney to find out exactly what you need to do. Good Luck!

    Kairi’s Answer

    There are a lot of details I would need to know to be able to give you a definitive answer, generally speaking if he has the ability to continue to support the household then that is what he should be doing as you all are still married. The best thing for you to do is take some action very quickly! Feel free to give me a call to discuss this matter further, my firm offers free consultations.

    Kairi’s Answer

    Your divorce will still proceed as it would if he were a permanent resident, you would still be entitled to an equitable division of all assets and debts. If his current visa status is just temporary he will have to deal with the potential immigration status issues that may be caused by the divorce, not you.

  • I need advice about filing for a divorce.

    I want to file for a divorce and I need to know how to file contested or not contested. We're in agreement that this is not what either of us want anymore. We own property but we will never agree how to divide it up. My husband is a total scumbag ...

    Kairi’s Answer

    You will not be able to file your divorce as an uncontested matter as you and your husband are not in agreement on how to dissolve all issues regarding assets, debts, and custody and support of children if there are any. Feel free to contact my office to discuss the different payment options that we offer.

  • If I have my pension check sent to me and I cash it and put it on a prepaid card or Walmart card, can it be garnished?

    A creditor has a judgement against me and can garnish my checking account. I know they cannot garnish my pension from my county employer, nor can they garnish the social security money from my checking account.

    Kairi’s Answer

    Technically the money is exempt from being garnished regardless of what type of account it is in. The problem is that if the creditor that holds the judgement against you actually garnishes the funds, you will be in the position of trying to prove that all of the funds were from your pension to get them back and that may be a very hard and time consuming thing to do.

    Its likely that he will be sent a notice requiring him to appear in court if they decide to charge him with an offense. Although, they are able to issue a warrant for his arrest at a later date, that is generally not what happens if an arrest is not made at the time of the incident. You can always contact the appropriate jurisdiction to determine if he has any outstanding warrants or to inquire as to whether or not they are going to bring charges against him.

  • Will my husband of less than 6 months have to pay me alimony or child support if he takes on a 2nd wife?

    My husband's religion allows him to have more than one wife. Can he now get joint custody of our child (born out of wedlock) and not have to pay child support? He more than likely isn't going to marry the 2nd wife through the court system, there...

    Kairi’s Answer

    To answer your question more fully there are questions that I would need for you to answer. 1. Are you married (legally) to your husband? 2. Do you have any means to support yourself?

    In the state of Georgia there is no common law marriage, therefore, if you and your husband were not married legally you would not be entitled to alimony. In addition to that, when a GA court makes a determination of alimony they consider the length of the marriage, the needs of the party requesting alimony and the paying party's ability to pay the requested alimony.

    In regards to child support, if your husband was able to get joint custody it does not automatically mean that he would not be required to pay child support. A child support worksheet would still have to be completed assessing the financial position of both parents to determine if child support is to be paid by one of the parents.
