    You cannot pay a hit and run ticket in Georgia. If you enter a guilty plea, you may be subject to a license suspension, fine, community service and even jail time. You need to hire an attorney ASAP.

    You can still file an answer. There is no default judgment in divorce, like in civil matters. I would suggest contacting an attorney to assist you in filing the answer and any other necessary documents and representing you at the hearing. If you don't file anything, the case will be heard as an uncontested divorce at the first hearing and then you will be in a bad situation.

  3. After the charges are dismissed, does this mean the defendant will have no "record"?

    I agree with Benjamin. He would either be dismissed, or a plea in absentia would be accepted. If a plea was accepted, especially to a felony charge, the charge alone may be enough to result in deportation. The defendant may receive a first offender discharge if he successfully completes probation; however, the arrest for the offense will remain on his record.

    Estate planning can be a complicated, and sometimes confusing process. I would recommend sitting down with an attorney, and possibly a tax expert, to discuss the options available to you before proceeding with either of the options you mentioned. You want to ensure that the estate receives all available tax benefits and that the beneficiaries do not incur any unnecessary financial/tax obligations. If the father has any medical conditions that may require treatment down the road, he may want...

    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...

  6. I am being sued by a collection agency who retained a lawyer in Atlanta. This debt is still within Statute of limitation (5 +)

    You should contact an attorney ASAP. Most offer a free consultation and depending on where the case is now, magistrate court or state/superior court, the cost of representation should not be too high (less than $1500). You do not want to mess around and get a default judgment which would be entered if you fail to answer the complaint in a timely manner (30 days, or 45 if you pay costs to re-open the default). An attorney can file the answer for you and negotiate with the attorney who...

  7. Can aggravated assault charges be dismissed?

    You certainly have several issues that would potentially provide grounds for dismissal of the charges. Aggravated assault and interfering with governmental property are charges that require proof of intent of the defendant to commit the act. Certainly, if you reasonably believed there was a home invasion and that you were protecting yourselves, your home and your children, the element of intent would be placed into serious question, in addition to arguing self-defense. There may also be an...

    Indictment means you have been formally charged with the crimes and your case will proceed to arraignment in superior court. At this point, you should consult with an attorney and make sure he or she is experienced in criminal defense and familiar with the local court system. You do not want to attempt to represent yourself in a felony criminal matter. The prosecutor may seem like he or she is your friend but make no mistake, prosecutors work for the state and are not going to bend over...

  9. Why would I be asked 2 file the Request for Admission w/both the court and the law office but the other 2 only w/the law office?

    The rules for discovery vary for each document utilized by a party. Requests for admission must be filed with the clerk to be enforceable, meaning if you fail to respond and file within 30 days, the statements in the request for admission could be deemed admitted and you could be estopped from asserting a different position in the case. Interrogatories and request for production do not usually require filing of the actual response with the court. I would suggest hiring an attorney who can...
