You have a couple of options. You can file for divorce and seek child/spousal support that way. Or you can seek the same through a separate maintenance action. You really need to meet with an attorney to decide which is the best option for you. Just be mindful that there are certain time sensitive jurisdictional rules that must be followed that could effect whether you can move forward in Georgia or NY.See question

Courts are not supposed to interfere too much on how parents raise there children, so long as chooses made are not detrimental to the child's emotional; physical; and educational well being. That is a very subjective test. Before you do anything, you should consult with an experienced family law attorney/guardian ad litem who can give some insight on how a Court MAY react to your plans.See question
I was sent notice that a hearing was scheduled to "confirm" a temp child support order that was put in place for the father of my child. I would like to know what to expect to happen at the hearing?
The Judge will attempt to determine the gross income of both parties; consider legitimate extraordinary expenses for the child and deviations; and apply the child support statute to the facts of your case before issuing the order on child support. I doubt this very vague response helps you. It is a complex procedure that require you to hire an attorney.See question

You have no parental rights until you legitimate your son. Once that happens, you stand on equal footing as the mother. You should not trust her to file the proper paperwork to make that happen. Obviously, she does not have you or your relationship with your son at heart. Something this important should not be left to others to handle. You need to hire and attorney and get the process started.See question
I asked the question about my husband disappearing and I feel like he married me for citizenship. I want to know could I file for an annulment even if I don't know where he is.
I can understand why someone would want an annulment instead of a divorce. One may decide to go for an annulment for religious reasons or for some sort of personal vindication. Legally, however, it is difficult to get an annulment. You should consult with an attorney to fully assess the situation. Ultimately, your goal is the same...to be completely severed from this person and to be free to marry someone else if you so desire. Perhaps it is best not to get caught up on terminology. If the end is the same, perhaps it does not matter if your call it divorce; annulment; or chicken noodle soup. As long as you get what you want, call it whatever you want to call it.See question
