    YOU NEED TO CONTACT AN ATTORNEY IMMEDIATELY. I am certain a qualified attorney in the area where your son resides could assist you in filing a Modification of Child Custody based on the child's election to live with you. Furthermore, Georgia courts allow children 14 and over the option to choose which parent they wish to have primary physical custody and primarily reside with. From the information provided, you may what to also request substantial restrictions be placed on the visitation...

    Do not forget the complications "pro se" defendant's have with the rules of evidence. You really need to hire an attorney, particularly if the matter involves a serious crime. If you disagree with these responses I suggest you go down to the Recorder's Court of Gwinnett County any afternoon after 1:00 and sit in on a pro se bench trial. Gwinnett Recorder's Court address 115 Stone Mountain Street Lawrenceville, Georgia 30046 Typically only traffic offenses, minor misdemeanor's and...

    I agree with the other two attorneys who answered your questioned, you should talk with the lawyer who handled your case. However, the best thing to do is to be honest with your probation officer. Their goal is to monitor you and make sure you do not offend the laws of Georgia while on probation, not prior to being placed on probation.

    Generally speaking, relatives do not have custodial rights to a minor child if the parents or a parent is considered fit and can adequately care and provide for the child. Because the information you provided is fairly limited, I would recommend you contact an attorney to have a more in depth discussion about the facts and issues concerning custody or nephew. Good luck!

    I as well am not to clear as to what you are asking from the information provided. More information would help in providing you with a more clear response to your inquiry. If by "prose" you mean "pro se" then maybe. If you can no longer afford your attorney, you should ask them to withdraw from the case or terminate their services from your end. This will probably not let you off the hook for any outstanding balances owed to them.

    My colleagues are absolutely right, the D.A. can absolutely go forward with the State's case against you regardless of what was agreed upon between yourself and your ex-wife in a civil proceeding. They are also right in that she will undoubtedly be subpoenaed to come and testify against you in your case. Furthermore, if she refuses or tells the D.A. that she made the allegations up, they could potentially charge her with false report of a crime. HOWEVER, not all hope is lost. What...

    Your boyfriend's attorney should be able to provide him with adequate guidance as to how he should proceed from this point. Generally speaking, when an individual is released from confinement on pretrial bond they are not suppose to leave the jurisdiction of the court. By "jurisdiction" I am referring to the county in which the alleged crime occurred. In the end the overall purpose of pretrial bond is to prevent punishment before a conviction and to secure the appearance of the person in...

    I agree with the other responding attorneys in that you really need to hire an attorney. An attorney will be able to analyze possible defenses and challenges to your citation that you may overlook or might not know exist. Depending on the particular court in which the charge is pending, the clerks office for that court is where all pleadings and motions need to be filed. You will need to bring the original and three (3) copies of the pleading and/or motion to the clerks office. You...

    Even though I am in full agreement with everything attorney Kem suggested, some of the facts present another issue that has not been addressed. In dealing with situations in which a parent resides internationally, the primary custodial parent needs to be aware that International Parental Child Abductions ("IPCA") occur, they are costly, they are a real danger, and if happens, go guarantee left-behind parents can get their child back. A custody order in the United States can be...
