  • Does my husband have legal rights to my daughter?

    When my daughter was born in 2013 ... Me and her father wasn't married he did sign a paternity acknowledgment ...we later married 5 months after her birth. Does he have legal right now? If so what are his rights? Thanks

    Glen’s Answer

    His rights are the same as yours. The marriage legitimized the child.

  • I want to contest a will also I want my brother removed as executor.because he dose not plan to do as our dad ask in the will.

    I have no money for a lawyer but have a lot to lose if I do nothing.help

    Glen’s Answer

    Lawyers are not permitted to respond to your post by soliciting your business (AVVO prohibits it), so no one here can help unless you contact them and hire them. Nothing in your post indictates you have any basis to file anything in probate court, but if you do have a basis you need a lawyer. Since a consultation can cost little or nothing, you should have already have one. Do one now. Be aware will contests are usually very expensive. You will have to borrow from family and friends, or get a loan. A lawyer is not going to do a will contest for free. Since you have a lot to lose, and time frames are short to file, get a consultation from a lawyer in your area, then head for your bank and take out a loan if he thinks you should proceed.

  • My alimony

    I like to now if I can get my alimony stop if my ex wife has a new boyfriend and how can I get her to get that car out of my name the paperwork said she have to

    Glen’s Answer

    A full answer requires a lawyer to read your papers. Alimony may or may not be modifiable depending on the language. What you can do about the car also depends on that language.

  • What is meant by defendant's claim for alimony is severed and preserved for the court's consideration at a later date

    How long can the court considered the alimony after the divorce?

    Glen’s Answer

    The fact that you posted here says you have done the very worst thing anyone can do in a divorce - going to a hearing without a lawyer. That always ends badly. As for what it means, no one here can tell you as we have not read the order. It could mean that you were actually in a temporary hearibng and didn't know that. And while unlikely, it could mean the judged reserved an issue to decide later. You've already made a possibly unfixable mistake. See a lawyer in the morning - not soon - now - determine what happened, and retain that lawyer to make any filings that might protect your interest.

    • Selected as best answer

    I am sad to say that you have already screwed up horribly by talking the other insurer. Stop! That adjuster, who is paid to try and ruin and deny your claim, has already been working with attorneys to deny all claims. You need to do two things today. One is hire counsel. The other is to get a full checkup - long overdue - for you and your son. The delay in treatment and you continued conversations with the insurer are problems and you need a lawyer to fix them. On your own, expect to get zero or close to it.

  • Child Abandonment for non payment

    How do I file for child support abandonment on my ex husband if he moved out of state about 2 yrs ago. Last payment was 12/2014. Last Summer was the last time he saw her 2014. I have his address info.

    Glen’s Answer

    Since he left the state a Georgia warrant is probably a waste of time. If you do not have the funds for private council start a case via Georgia Child Support Enforcement. The fee, depending on your income, is $25 or free. You can start your case online at http://dcss.dhs.georgia.gov/application-services .

  • Question about leaving my bf without his knowledge taking our kids.

    My bf has been fooling around, I want to leave while he is at work. I live in Ga but want to go to Fl. We have 2 kids together. Would I be comitting a crime if I do that?

    Glen’s Answer

    If he has not legitimized the child, he has no rights to the child, and you can go, and it's not a crime, but it could be a huge mistake. (If he has legitimized the child the answer depends on what happened in that case and you should see your lawyer). Note that if you move, for the next six months Georgia has jurisdiction and judges tend to not like a parent who moves a child far from the other parent, so you might face adverse consequences in that future case if filed.

  • Illegally attempting to collect a debt, who do I turn to?

    Claims I owe a bank from back in 2005, its 2015! Do I need a cease and desist letter or do I need to go to my Georgia Attorney General over the matter. Any advice would be very much appreciated.

    Glen’s Answer

    First of all, you need to share all the facts as to what happened in the past with the debt. If there have been no payments since 2005, and no lawsuit since, the statute of limitations has run. You may want to show a lawyer their letter to see if there are violations of federal law you can sue over. However, if they previously sued you and got a judgment, that debt may be collectable today. Again, you would need to see your lawyer to determine if bankruptcy, defense or payment are appropriate.

  • How to get my child legitimized?

    Glen’s Answer

    You have two problems here. Let me address the one that will land you in jail. You HAVE to pay support - every month. While it can be hard to find a good job, how come you have not been mowing all the yards in your area, cleaning gutters and doing odd jobs to pay some support. Keep not paying and you may not have to ever worry about visitation - you may be in jail and lose a drivers license. Stop saying "can't." No judge will buy it. As for legitimization, you will need a lawyer. That costs money too. That means get a job. If you are paying support that legitimization will go better.
