    Although you do not want to get a restraining order, it may be the best thing to do to have your child's father and grandmother stop bothering you. That way, if you have a restraining order and they continue to call and show up at your workplace or any other place where you are that they're prohibited from being while you're there, they will face legal penalties. You said yourself that the father has nothing to offer so there should be no need to be in contact with him. As far as preventing...

    If you did not disclose any of the terms or conditions of the agreement then you did not violate the confidentiality agreement. However, if any legal action is brought against you for Breach of Contract, you need to seek the legal services of a lawyer with experienced in the area of contract/business law as soon as possible.

    Yes, they can be charged with sexual battery. In Georgia sexual battery is defined as intentionally making physical contact with the intimate parts of the body of another person without the consent of that person. (Intimate parts are primary the genital area, anus, groin, inner thighs, or buttocks of a male or female and the breasts of a female.) Additionally, if the girl was under 16 it will be considered a felony. It is best to seek out legal representation as soon as possible. As this can...

    There are a number of ways that this could have been initiated or ordered. It depends on how the court is set up. But, generally, the judge, the defense attorney, or the guardian ad litem (if one was appointed) could ask that a mental evaluation be done. It would be best for you to consult with an attorney who can get all the facts and details and determine the best course of action.

    Continuances are granted where “justice requires it”. They are not normally granted for failing to obtain counsel. In order to get a continuance you must show that you used due diligence to try to obtain an attorney. The fact that your trial date is month out would mean that you would have to convince the court that you could not find an attorney in that amount of time. I would suggest you consult an attorney immediately and then they could file a continuance if need be in order to obtain...

  6. What are your options when faced with a reckless conduct ticket? I have a DUI from 2 years ago as well.

    Your options are to accept the charge (pay the fine), which will most likely be a misdemeanor, or contest the charges in court. Reckless conduct is not the same as reckless driving. Reckless conduct is essentially showing an indifference to the safety of others and lack of consideration for their welfare. Reckless conduct can be a number of things and is not necessarily a moving violation. Reckless driving is a moving violation and occurs when the indifference is shown while driving a...

  7. Whose income will be included in determining child support for child born to an 18 year old still living with his parents?

    The parent’s income will not be included in determining the child support payments he is required to make. Child support may be modified in two years and if he is out of school and has a full time job, it is likely the amount of the payments will change. The main way his living situation and schooling, etc., would be considered is when it comes to custody and determining the best place for the child to live. Additionally, since the child was born out-of-wedlock, if the son has not legitimized...

    The best thing to do is to have the children legitimized if you have not already. In order to obtain legal rights as a father in Georgia, you have to legitimize your child. If you were not married to the child’s mother when the child was born, without legitimization, you have no rights to the child in Georgia.There are many benefits to legitimization. Besides the legal rights of the father, like being able to petition for custody and visitation, legitimization serves many purposes for the child....

  9. Will the airport check to see if I'm on probation to travel to another state?

    The real issue is if you're allowed, under the terms of your probation, to travel to another state without specific permission. Without knowing details of your probation, we cannot speculate with you about what could happen if you travel out-of-state for any purpose. However, doing so without the permission of your probation officer, could subject you to a probation violation which could lead to arrest. So, we strongly suggest you, first, contact the attorney or public defender who's familiar...
