    Grounds for annulment will usually include fraud of some sort that induced one of the parties to enter into the marriage contract. For example, any circumstance that would prevent a person from entering into the marriage contract may provide grounds for an annulment. In Georgia, a person must be (1) be of sound mind; (2) be at least 18 years of age (unless parental consent is given for a 16 or 17 year old); (3) have no living spouse of a previous undissolved marriage; and (4) not be related...

    This will depend greatly on the attorney you choose. However, you should expect to pay approximately $1,000.00, give or take some, for solid representation in an uncontested divorce with minor children. Please note that uncontested does NOT mean that your spouse wants the divorce too, but the two of you don't agree on anything else. Uncontested means you agree on EVERYTHING, including custody, visitation, child support, asset distribution, and debt apportionment. If you aren't in...

  3. Do I have a case if my bankruptcy lawyer gave me bad advice leading to old tax debt being owed

    Don't panic. As Ms. Bunce alluded to, it sounds as though your bankruptcy attorney may have been correct and that the folks at the government do not know what they are talking about. Perhaps it will help if you go and consult with another bankruptcy attorney and get a second opinion on this. Then hopefully you will know if your beef is with your bankruptcy attorney or with the government.

  4. A debt lawsuit was filed against me two weeks ago, however, I have not received a summons. Should I just wait for it?

    The Plaintiff cannot obtain a judgment or any post-judgment relief without serving you first. This being said, however, the most prudent thing for you to do is monitor the case closely to make sure that the Plaintiff does not falsely claim to have served you (unlikely, but this has happened before). This will show up in the Clerk's Office's file. If you are served or if something shows up in the file indicating that the Plaintiff is claiming that you have been served, you should hire an...

  5. Divorced in 2009, house still has my name on mortgage, ex-husband lives there can I move back in?

    As Ms. Eyo stated, this will depend completely on what your divorce decree allows. However, you will likely have to file a motion for contempt (regarding your ex-husband's failure to list the house as ordered) and a motion for modification (to ask the court to allow you to live there in light of this failure). The motions can be combined into one action, and a knowledgable attorney will be able to help you do this smoothly.

    Now that it's clear that this is a divorce situation, the most important factor in determining the nature of the asset is probably going to be the character of the source of the funds that paid to purchase and maintain it. If it was purchased with family funds, then the Court will probably hold that it is a family asset. Focus more on the source of the funds and less on what the seller can testify to. And by the way, for the seller to help you at all, he will have to testify, not merely...

    Your husband's statements are highly suspicious and are probably nothing more than a calculated attempt to scare you into doing something unwise, like NOT discussing your case with an attorney. You should certainly sit down with an experienced family law attorney so that you can get a good idea of what your rights are and what likely outcomes will be. Acquiring knowledge of the process that you're about to go through is the first step toward securing your future. Having a experienced...

    It sounds as though you already have a child support order and custody and visitation orders. Both parties should continue to follow the orders. If circumstances change such that a modification is appropriate, you must go before the court to have the orders modified. If you disobey the current order, you put yourself in jeopardy of being held in contempt of court. Your ex should not be withholding visitation from you, even if you are failing to pay child support. Child support and...

    You are correct to be suspicious. First, the collection of this debt is now likely barred by the statute of limitations based on the information you have given. If the debt is time-barred, you cannot be required to pay it at this point. In fact, the debt collector may be committing a violation of federal law by attempting to collect this debt, and you may be entitled to damages. Second, as you suspected, third-party debt collectors often cannot show that they are legally entitled to...

    Although there could be any number of reasons for the delay, I would look closely at any advantage the wife might be getting as a result of the divorce not being finalized. For example, if a temporary hearing is in place, and the agreement between the parties is less advantageous to the wife than what she is getting under the temporary hearing, then the wife has an incentive to drag her feet on requesting a final hearing. Three years to finalize a now-uncontested divorce is a substantial...
