    You can establish residency in Georgia by applying for your driver's license in the state. The Department of Driver's Services requires proof of residency, which can be established by providing a current utility bill with your name and address on it. I would suggest putting one of her utilities in your name and then as soon as you have a bill, go to the DDS and get your new license. The school system will accept the driver's license as proof of residence for enrollment purposes.

    If the law firm is seeking damages after a shoplifting or theft offense, it is just an attempt to scare you into paying. I have seen hundreds of these letters through my clients and not once have I seen any follow-up from the law firm. Most of the law firms are out-of-state and have no plans to come to Georgia to actually sue you. An attorney can draft a letter to them regarding their meritless threats for a minimal fee. I would suggest getting a free consultation to discuss your case in...

    If you know that he received a large check, I would suggest filing a contempt action immediately. I understand that you say he doesn't care about consequences, but if he is found in contempt a second time, the Court will very likely order incarceration until he pays child support arrearage in full, especially if he has means with which to pay (ie. the large severance check). Attorney's fees are also likely to be awarded in a second contempt action. If you wait to file the contempt, we will...

    You would need to give temporary guardianship to your mother to allow her to travel with him and for her to obtain medical services, etc for him when you are not present. Temporary guardianship is handled through the probate court system. I would recommend speaking with an attorney. Guardianship matters are not simple matters and should not be handled without an attorney's assistance.

  5. Petition to Modify Custody?

    Answered 3 months ago.

    1 lawyer answer

    You can proceed with the modification action if you feel there is a change in circumstance affecting the child. I would recommend speaking with a family law attorney as modification actions can be very difficult and you likely are not prepared to argue a full-blown modification action. Any modification action must be filed in the county where the Defendant resides and accordingly, Lee county would not be the proper venue for the modification action and modification is not a remedy available...

    The Defendant has to be properly served with the petition or complaint prior to a hearing being conducted. If you were not served, the hearing would have to be rescheduled again.

    You can file a petition for contempt. The order will require your ex husband to comply with the court order, regardless of whether he is remarried. I would recommend hiring an attorney who can properly present your case to the judge. You can also seek attorney's fees as part of the case.

    You can file a petition for name change of a minor in the county where you and your son reside. You must serve the father with a copy of the petition and he has 30 days to file an objection. If he does not object and does not appear at the final hearing, the name change will be granted as long as publication has run and you are not seeking the name change for any fraudulent or criminal purpose.

    As long as your case was handled exclusively in juvenile court, you do not have a conviction for the offenses. Juvenile court matters result in either an adjudication or a dismissal. In your case, you were adjudicated under the designated felony statute - however, you were not convicted of any criminal offense. You have not suffered any loss of your civil rights based upon the adjudication. I would contact an attorney to determine if you are eligible to have your juvenile records sealed to...

  10. Can a divorce attorney refuse to send me a revised settlement agreement to review because I don't have council?

    It sounds a little strange to me. It is easy enough to scan and email a document to an opposing party. You may want to consider hiring an attorney just to review the settlement agreement before you sign it to ensure nothing has been added or is included that could be detrimental to you. Most attorney's will charge an hourly fee to review the agreement which shouldn't be more than a few hundred dollars.
