    Most Georgia attorneys handle pro bono (free) cases from time to time. Georgia Legal Services also does. Try to get a divorce not just a separation.

    I agree that if you want to fight you need a local Lawyer. There are rules about the use of radar and laser to check for speeding. Schools zones have times that are typically posted, but consider that schools are having longer hours and yet many signs posting the speedzone hours are not right because they haven't changed the times on them. There are defenses that could come into play. I think it's worth a consultation. *** This is a general interest posting on a public website, regarding...

    If you did have permission and as you say, have been doing this, I think you are okay. If your Husband is claiming you did not have permission on this check, go see a lawyer if there is a threat of criminal charge. In the future, have him endorse the checks.

    Remember, as you say, the policeman gave you a break already. There are risks in withdrawing a plea, not the least of which is a worse outcome. It may be reported even if it was only 14mph over. Some municipalities don’t report 14mph or less. If you don’t have many points on your drivers license then you don’t have much to worry about. If that was a 2 lane road you were on, you could have gotten a Superspeeder ticket under O.C.G.A §40-6-160 et seq. If you are in point trouble your points...

    When you contact the District Attorney’s office, be sure to ask to speak with the victims advocate. Ask for a meeting. They should be able to provide you with a “Victims’ Rights” pamphlet and explain your victim’s rights as well as answer your questions. You can explain your concerns and hopefully get a friendly advocate for your rights as a “victim.” *** This is a general interest posting on a public website, regarding general legal concepts.

  6. How does a ex felon get his legal rights back?

    Contact the Georgia Adult Probation office in your county. They should have a form for that very purpose: restoration of cicil rights. You should be able to get it taken care of there once they confirm that you completed all conditions on the plea to the felony. *** This is a general interest posting on a public website, regarding general legal concepts.

  7. How to determine court jurisdiction

    You do not have a minute to waste. Call and get an appointment for a consultation with a Georgia lawyer in your area with experience in Family law matters. It doesn’t sound like there is jurisdiction in California based upon your statement, but you need to be sure before ignoring a judge. You may need an emergency order or protective order. Make sure you take your original custody documents with you. Good luck.

    In Georgia an unwed Mother of a child born out of wedlock has sole custody. Even though signing the birth certificate gives a presumption of fatherhood, it does not give custody rights. He (the Father) must file a ligitimation action. It is not illegal for you to move until and unless there is a court order. *** This is a general interest posting on a public website, regarding general legal concepts.

  10. I was arrested in GA 10/2004 & the case was completely expunged 5/2005. My mugshot has NEVER appeared on the web before 11/2012

    You could try a civil suit seeking an injunction and the removal of the mug shot as an invasion of privacy. It is possible that it could work if the company is based in the U.S. As I understand your question, the information is not public record and was not when it was obtained by the company. I can't say it would be cheap but it might just help. However, I do agree with the previous two posts.
