  • Would taking action with filing child abandonment be the best way to get any kind of action done?

    Last year my childs father and I went to court over custody. He set up an amount for child support, but has yet to pay anything. In may I opened a case with child support enforcement, but they aren't really enforcing it. every 2-3 months he gets a...

    Glen’s Answer

    When you get a real deadbeat on support, sometimes nothing works. Abandonment warrants sometimes work, and sometimes don't, so I'd hesitate to say drop one route and try another, but it coulld work. Hiring a lawyer for a contempt might also work, but that will cost you legal fees.

  • What are my chances of getting sole custody?

    I have mediation coming up in February, I also have a signed statement from a witness that the father filed for custody of our 2 children out of retaliation because I did not lie on state documents to obtain state benefits and then filed for child...

    Glen’s Answer

    Why are you not asking the only person who coulld give a realistic answer? Your lawyer has seen your evidence knows the judge, and should have a good feel for your case. No one here has that and a guess here would be as accurate as a coin flip. It's almost 9 AM; call your lawyer. (Good luck with your case).

    Sure he can try via filing legitimization in Georgia. That case also would set support. It is foolish to worry about a nonexistent case. However if he ever does file see a lawyer asap.

  • What do I need to do since I can't afford a lawyer

    My 16 year old wants to live with me but her mother has custody. She's in Indiana and I'm in Georgia.

    Glen’s Answer

    First of all you need to ask. Indiana lawyers and not Georgia ones as the court case would likely be there. And if you are serious about this you need to find some money to see a lawyer there.

    Glen’s Answer

    He has no rights absent legitimization. That makes him a criminal (interference with custody or kidnapping). The police may be of help, and so may a lawyer.

    Glen’s Answer

    Divorces aren't thrown out because a husband won't sign, and cases also can be amended. That means you have left out vital details needed to understand what happened. Regardless, attorneys matter, and you need one now.

    Glen’s Answer

    Other than the obvious physical protection (no sex with him and get STD tested), separating your finances will matter (so you have full access to your own pay) so open your own bank account. Beyond that, see a lawyer ASAP to discuss things in more detail. More info is needed to determine other steps.

  • Can I do anything to get the manager at Client B to repair my truck like he said he would initially?

    Glen’s Answer

    If he's ignoring you, sue him in Small Claims court (called Magistrates Court). Be aware that this takes up your time, so you need to evaluate how badly you want the $700. You will have to prove that it was their fault and that $700 is the reasonable repair cost (get several estimates, not just one) to prevail.

  • How can I get joint custody of my daughter? What are my options, if any?

    Glen’s Answer

    Unless you have a court ordered legitimization, you have no rights at all, so that is step one. If you have done that, modification of custody requires some change in circumstances, but more parenting time (visitation) is also possible. While some courts still may have a bias to one gender fathers fare far better than many people think. You need to sit down with a lawyer, share all the details,, and then make your decisions.
