    You need an attorney immediately, before the closing takes place. Preferably, one who practices divorce law and understands how to protect your rights under the Final Decree.

    Unfortunately, you will not be able to get an answer to problem until you hire an experienced Family Law attorney to review all of the court documents and to determine what steps can be taken. You should do that immediately.

    You should not attempt to do this without an attorney. However, if properly done, with the cooperation and agreement of all 3 parties, you can pull this off. You should end up with a new birth certificate showing the biological father on it, with his last name. There are two legal actions that must be filed, and you should retain an experienced Family Law Attorney.

  4. Does terminating parental rights excuse the non-custodial parent from paying child support? I live in GA and he lives in NC.

    Signing a voluntary surrender of parental rights for the purpose of allowing a step parent adoption does not relieve him of past due child support obligations. However, the surrender is only good for 6 months, and you must file the adoption petition before it expires. His obligation for support does not terminate until the adoption is completed by a Final Order of Adoption and termination of the rights of the biological father. After it is final, you can then pursue collection of child...

  5. How do my son's mother and I go about dropping any arrears in child support in the state of Georgia?

    The State of Georgia does not authorize the parties to modify child support on their own. Only a court order can do that. Also, the Judge is not authorized to retroactively modify child support obligations. Your son's mother may choose not to actively pursue the arrearage. However, she cannot forgive it and make it go away. When she seeks government assistance, such as medicade, she is subject to their rules. You will need an attorney to draft a Consent Order for a Judge to sign...

    There is a specific statutory procedure for doing this. You must comply exactly with the statute, and you most likely will only get once chance to get it right. You need to retain an experienced family law attorney who is familiar with the statute for setting aside paternity. Do not attempt this yourself because, if you do not do it properly, you probably will not get a chance to fix it later, even with an attorney.

    You should review the divorce decree with the attorney who negotiated it for you at the time of the divorce. If that is not possible, then you need to retain an experienced family law attorney to review it with you and to deal with his attorney.

    No, you cannot claim the child without legally obtained permission (IRS form) from the custodial parent. You need to consider getting a new tax consultant before you get into real trouble with the IRS.

    I think that you should get some social counseling because this is not a legal question so much as it is a personal decision for you. Legally, you can do whatever you choose to do. No one is going to make that decision for you, and they probably cannot do anything at all without your consent. But, it may be a decision that you live to regret, because it is not easily, if at all, reversed. You may never see your daughter again. You say that your parents "want" to move to Mexico. You should...
