    Your court order states that you could be tested by hair sample. My advice is for you not to drink and follow the guidelines of your probation. Whether it is likely or not that you would be subjected to a hair sample test is something I cannot answer. I think the more pertinent question should be "is it possible?" The answer to that question is yes. Therefore, don't take the chance. Don't drink on probation.

    I agree with my colleague. If you are in Chatham County, there is a standing order in place that is effective when you file preventing certain financial transactions. I suggest you speak with an attorney so you can determine the best course you should take.

    I agree with my colleague. You should retain an attorney. You need to understand your rights and ensure that they are protected. It is never advisable to go to court without an attorney to represent you.

    Your probation officer could notify the court of a violation of probation. Failing a drug test is definitely a violation of your probation. If she reports the violation, a warrant will issue and you will need to turn yourself in. You could have your probation revoked or you could be placed back on probation. If you have an attorney, you should really speak with your attorney about what is likely to happen and also to have a plan of action if/when a warrant is issued. Probation is taken...

    In Georgia, the father of a child born out of wedlock must legitimate the child. If the father has not legitimated the child, he does not have any legal rights to visitation with the child. His mother would also not have legal rights to the child. When a suit is filed, you need to hire an attorney to represent you. if you are concerned that your child might not be safe with the father or his mother, these issues will need to be addressed before the court. Without a court order, the...

    Before you are required to come to respond or do anything in GA, it must first be established that the GA court has personal jurisdiction over you. The statute that governs personal jurisdiction in interstate child support cases is known as the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA). UIFSA has been adopted by every state, so a lawyer in New York would be able to tell you if you need to make an appearance in GA. If you have never been to GA, the chances are that GA cannot exercise...

    You should hire an attorney as the other answers suggest. If the warrant is issued, you will leave the courtroom under arrest. You have rights that you need to be aware of as the case moves forward. Hopefully this case will end at the pre-warrant hearing. If not, this will be the beginning of the process.

    I agree with my colleagues. If your case is in Chatham County you may have an option depending on the charge. If you do not have an attorney working on your case, you should hire one.
