  • Wife has affair, 10 yr marriage, 2 kids from Her previous relationships, hubby supporting all, will he have to pay support on

    Will he have to pay support on those 2 kids which are not his, but he has been suporting? One was legally adopted by wife's parents, but they returned her to wife. they live in Lexington, Ga

    Morris’s Answer

    If the children are not his and were not born to his wife while he was married to her they are not his legal responsibility. Based on the information conveyed in your questions, he is not legally obligated to pay child support.

  • I got arrested for pandering in GA. What will my punishment be? It's my first affense and I've never got in trouble before

    My background is clean. Never got in trouble with the law before and this is just a misdeminer. What will the judge give me?

    Morris’s Answer

    Athens is not a good jurisdiction to take chances in. The Solicitor's office (the prosecutor) is experienced and tough. You really should discuss the case with a local lawyer so you can determine all of your options. since you have no prior record you are in a strong position to negotiate an outcome you can live with but you need to get help on this.

    Morris’s Answer

    If your spouse is facing a case in federal court you will want to speak to a lawyer that practices in federal court. Try to meet with several lawyers and see if you can find one you feel comfortable with.

  • To whom do I write out the money order to request a hearing under the ten day rule for my DUI IN Georgia?

    Morris’s Answer

    Georgia Department of Driver Services gets the money. Get yourself an attorney that know what they are doing or you will find you have a long row to hoe. After you are in over your head it may be too late.

  • What will happen if charged with Embezzlement ( Larceny) of 300K from employer. They are investigating.

    I am a 1st offender who has been through a rough patch for the last 4 years. I am being investigated for taking over 300K. As a 1st offender in Georgia, what time am I looking at? I am 8 months pregnant and scared. I want to pay the money back...

    Morris’s Answer

    From anyones perspective, especially the prosecutior's, that is a good deal of money. You will need to secure a great lawyer and work closely with them to try to avoid jail time. Who you took the money from and their attitude toward punishment is something to consider carefully. If you are on first offender probation at this time that will complicate things for you further. you may be able to avoid jail time but you really need to make sure you get a great lawyer as soon as possible.

    my husbad has 1st time dui and he missed his last appointment with his probation officer due to an illness. he was also supposed to give his PO the document showing he competed his comunity service hours. my husband never went to talk to his PO af...

    Morris’s Answer

    If your husband has been in jail for a week and his violation was not reporting and not turning in community service I am confident the situation can be resolved in a way that allows him to avoid additional and further jail time. Before he is likely to be released we have to get him before the judge to review his case and resolve the violations or get him a probation bond. Unfortunately he will need to hire a lawyer to help him get these issues addressed as swiftly as possible other wise he may continue to sit in jail until the court is ready to deal with him.

  • Can drunk drivers be charged with attempted murder of their passengers?

    In CA, single car accident everyone in the car intoxicated.

    Morris’s Answer

    As a practical matter ....no. However, DUI/Serious Injury/Vehicular Homicide charges are sufficiently serious without attempted murder charges. Anyone facing these charges needs to speak to a skilled attorney as soon as possible.
