  • Does a will/POA have an expiration date? We are being told it is invalid because of its age.

    The will was revised by my in laws after my husbands sister pass away. Now my mother-in-law's financial adviser is telling us it is too old and invalid. We gave him a copy with a lump sum agreement we received from one of her investments, to get s...

    Wills are never too old. And it is a criminal offense for a "financial advisor" to be giving legal advice (which in this case is wrong). Stop talking to him, and talk to a lawyer. And do NOT give him, a criminal, money, without a lawyer's advice.

  • How can I divorce my spouse if I don't know how to and can't afford to locate him?

    We married in 2011 and separated in 2012.

    Glen’s Answer

    Georgia law says you cannot get a divorce without a bona fide diligent search. Most search tools are free and your lawyer can help you with search tips. You will end up either serving him by sheriff, process server or publication. This isn't a pro se project.

  • Drunk driver hit my fiancé head one going the wrong way on highway using a rental car. He has insurance. What do we do for money

    The man was arrested for DUI, open container, and driving on the wrong side of the highway. My financee's car is totaled, but we are wondering what to do about Pain And Suffering compensation. and How much we could possibly obtain from the re...

    Glen’s Answer

    I am sorry this happened. Make NO statement at all to your or his insurance company - both are using agents paid to cheat you and twist your words. In a DUI case it is very possible that his insurance will be inadequate and your insurer also may be paying. So make sure you get all the medical care you need, but call a lawyer Monday. People think that insurers will pay claims, but ALL insurers take advantage of early pre-hiring of counsel discussions to lower your claim. Note that in a DUI there is a potential for far more than actual damages - there may be pain and suffering and also punitive damages against the driver (and maybe those who served the alcohol too).

    You should have already started a child support case with the state. That costs either 0 or $25. Do that tonight online at https://services.georgia.gov/dhr/cspp/do/public/ApplyNow ( do not wait a few days - start today). On Monday call a divorce and bankruptcy lawyer. BTW, it is dangerous to post your real name on the internet; call AVVO and see if they can edit it out.

  • Honda wrongfully repossessed my car thinking it was another customers car

    They somehow mixed up paperwork my car was repossessed and I don't even have an account with them

    Glen’s Answer

    Hopefully they gave you the car back quickly and apologized. You didn't ask a question so there's nothing for anyone here to answer.

  • I'm trying to get a divorce lawyer

    I need a divorce I have been married for 17 years and with my husband 5 of the years. I am a single mom of six can I please get help.

    Glen’s Answer

    AVVO prohibits lawyers from soliciting your business, so no one here can answer "I need help." You have to directly contact attorneys one on one. The good news in that AVVO has a tool for you to contact attorneys. Click the top of the screen "Find a Lawyer" tab, locate a lawyer near you, and use the links to call or email the lawyer.

  • Why does a judge order lifetime alimony? I have to pay longer that I have to pay for my kids

    Retired military 22 years. Vietnam vet with disability. Retired 6 mo ago. 64 years old. Ex 49 years old. I'm black she is white.

    Glen’s Answer

    There's no way to answer you. You chose to mention things that don't matter at all (race has no effect on alimony), and didn't tell basic things that matter: (1) Do you have a lawyer (which has a HUGE effect on the outcome, (2) how long was the marriage (huge impact), (3) what is the wife's financial situation and income and health (HUGE effect), (4) does she have a retirement plan (HUGE effect), (5) what are your respective incomes and debts? (HUGE effect), (6) age of your children and is she a stay at home mom (huge effect), (7) your respective incomes (HUGE effect). Call your lawyer Monday and discuss the things that matter.

  • Legitimization question.

    I did a legitimization of my child in 2004 even after I had a DNA test showing that he was not my biological son. My child was set to graduate this year but 5 weeks before school is suppose to get out my son calls to let me know that he is going ...

    Glen’s Answer

    No. You made a knowing choice to legitimate and overlook the evidence. You are stuck with that forever. As a Georgia court once said years ago, courts will not bastardize a child to let you out of child support.

  • My friend is in prison, he wants to divorce his wife

    They have no children or assets together. He knows she will never go along with it peacefully but can she contest it? And how can he go about getting it started?

    Glen’s Answer

    Sure she can contest the case and even ask for relief. And since she';s not agreeable it will be expensive. It will be even more expensive since he can't visit his lawyer and he will have to pay his lawyer to visit him. And yes, he needs a lawyer.

  • I have full legal custody of my daughter. My ex-husband has week to week visitation. Can he check or daughter out of school?

    In our agreement it states that I am in charge of everything concerning school. He can't even take her to the doctor without calling me.

    Glen’s Answer

    The answer depends on the exact wording of the parenting plan, and you failed to share that wording with us. Call the attorney who handled your case and already knows the wording.
