  • Me and my husband need to have our living wills made. How do we get started and how much does this cost.

    We both are in our 50's .I'm concerned because. 5 yrs ago he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. We both have grown children and wish to be cremated.

    Glen’s Answer

    I suspect you mean wills (living wills, generally no longer used, refer to life support and have been replaced by health care directives which you also may want to do). AVVO does not allow any of we lawyers to post fees, but costs for most wills are very expensive. You can get quotes by clicking links on lawyer's names here on AVVO. Given your family health issues, and I am sorry to hear of them, it is very prudent to look into wills, health care directives, powers of attorney and related planning.

  • Can I get anything from my husband in a divorce if he has moved back in with his ex after nearly 2 years of marriage (5/10/13)

    I've been married to my husband for nearly 2 years. He has left home 18 times and moved back with his ex-girlfriend (no lie!). The 18th time, I put him out, because he wouldn't stay away from her, or take her name off his cars and insurance. He wi...

    Glen’s Answer

    Alimony and settlements are rare in short marriages, and you didn't post about what would be central to the answer - your respective economic positions in the marriage. And while conduct may influence outcome, the 18 time syoiu took him back are likely to work against you. See a ;awyer with the details, as the details you did not post matter.

  • Im a single father, i live in Georgia and would like to get a divorce from someone in Colorado, Is that possible

    we were married in Colorado, we have a son he lives with me and we already have a legal separation

    Glen’s Answer

    Your post is confusing,. If you're a single father you're already divorced. Additionally, since Georgia does not have legal separations, that had to happen in another state. If you are actually married, it is possible that you can be divorced here. That depends a great deal on the language of that legal separation, and how long the child has been in Georgia, and where your wife lives. No one can answer your question without reading your legal separation and getting far more information than you posted. Make an attorney's appointment ASAP (you can use the links here on AVVO to reach attorneys).

    Glen’s Answer

    Unleess he ;legitimated the child he has no rights. And since the DNA test says he is not the father, he is not going to get a judge to give him those rights now.

  • I got a letter from the law offices of Michael Ira asen saying I have to pay back 1,000 dollars. What should I do? Atlanta,ga

    They said I got 21 days to pay it back in full but I'm only a high school senior and now I'm jobless so that's impossible to back

    Glen’s Answer

    It is probably a scam as there is no Georgia lawyer with that name. And, even if you borrowed money, debts from before you turned 18 are not enforceable. Have your parents show the letter to their lawyer.

    Glen’s Answer

    Depending on her county, she should be calling Georgia Legal Services, Atlanta Legal Aid, or her county bar association. Since you left out her county I cannot tell you which. (I changed your practice area to Divorce since you posted on part of AVVO with nothing to do with divorce, meaning most divorce lawyers wer going to miss the post).

  • Hired a Bankruptcy Lawyer to stop Garnishmen but still being garnished what should I do?

    i hired a lawyer to stop the garnishment. Went to court for final hearing with the trustee. After finding out garnishment fees were still coming out of check i didn't pay the court cost. The attorney called me that my case may end up being dismiss...

    Glen’s Answer

    You have a laswyer. You should have listened to - and talked to him. Why did you not TELL the lawyer that money was coming out of your paycheck? And why would you not have paid teh cpourt costs, KNOWING that will cause dismissal, and a new garnuishment? It is useless to have a lawtyer if you refuse to update him on what is happening, and if you refuse to pay court costs.

  • My mother died in November of 2013. The IRS wants $50K from the estate. The only "estate" left is a house that needs about $70k

    My mother died in November of 2013. The IRS wants $50K from the estate. The only "estate" left is a house that needs about $70k in repair. Her will left my elder brother as executor, but he lives in Florida, the rest of us are in Georgia. The IRS ...

    Glen’s Answer

    I am sorry for your loss. It was a HUGE mistake for anyone to open an estate without retaining a lawyer! In this case your brother will be working very hard tp earn money for the IRS and creditors, and the heirs are likely to see near zero. It would appear to be imprudent, and impossible, to spend 70K on repairs on a home with such debts. Your brother should meet witha lawyer, as he should have done in 2013, to determine how to get out of this mess. Sadly, it sounds like not much will be left for heirs, although a good lawyer may be able to do some negotiating with the creditors and IRS. The heirs, unless they make legal mistakes, will NOT be liable for the debts.

  • Going through a divorce. Husband quit claimed a house that was our second home to his friend. Is this legal?

    The house was being foreclosed on, so it would be lost anyway. However, I suspect that the friend is going to pay off the loan and sell it back to my husband at a later date. Can he do this?

    Glen’s Answer

    The fact that you are askling here tells us that you have made a serious mistake - being in a divorce without a lawyer. Fix that Monday; divorces without lawyers tend to be disasters. There may or may not be problems as to the home, but these are the type things a lawyer deals with in a case to most effectively represent you.
