I'm a mother that lives in Georgia. Is there some type of written law in Georgia requiring a noncustodial parent to pay 27% of medical expenses to the custodial parent, outside of the regular child support payment the custodial is already receivin...
A judge CAN order a party to pay part or all of a child's medical expenses (there is NO fixed percent in the law - the percent is set by the judge). What a person must pay, and the conditions and possible sanctions all depend on how the order is written.See question
I am POA for my mom dated 1999. She got a new one last year naming someone else as POA. I guess she thought she lost it or forgot she had one. The new POA doesnt say it revokes any previous ones, but does it automatically? or am I still POA.
It would be very risky to try to use a 17 year old POA when you know there is a new one. Unless a lawyer reads both and then determines otherwise, don't use it! (And no one who has not read both would suggest you could or should use the old one, as you might get sued later).See question
I let my daughter father have her for the weekend. He said he was not bringing her back. When i had police escort to get her back , he provided some paperwork and the cop said he couldnt tell me what it was
Even though you may be in the right, police don't like to interpret civil paperwork. In the morning, call your lawyer and do it fast. You may need to seek a court order in a hurry.See question
Does Georgia recognize same-sex marriages from other states, for the purposes of immigration? My partner and I and planning to marry and I will sponsor him for a green card, but I'm reading online that same-sex marriage isn't recognized in the st...
The US Supreme Court has made same-sex marriage the law of the land in every state. State law doesn't affect immigration as to gender. Discuss this with your immigration lawyer,.See question
How is it that when we have joint legal and physical custody of the kids does child support still get paid out? We just won joint legal and joint physical and still have to pay 700 a month in child support. What can be done here?
Nothing. I'm sure your lawyer already explained it (and if you didn't have one, you needed one). First of all joint may not even mean 50-50 (you'd have to read the whole schedule because 50-50 time rarely happens). But second, unless both of your incomes and parenting times are exactly equal, one party would owe the other support using the child support calculator. Deviations also could cause it. Again, call your lawyer if you didn't understand it when he explained it initially.See question
My husband has twins with a woman he was never married to. My husband pays all child support, & medical bills that are submitted within 30 days of being incurred, per the child support agreement. Once the ex became divorced, she asked for 8 years ...
First of all the contempt is not against "us" but your husband, who BADLY needs a lawyer yesterday! Most of this will probably go far better with counsel. While no one can project outcomes, likely the bills will have to get paid but he likely will get lots of time to address them, and visitation, if a lawyer presents the case well, may come reasonably soon. Not having a lawyer at mediation was an awful decision, as a good lawyer often can make mediation more successful, so an opportunity was missed.See question
My daughter is pregnant, but in order for my insurance to cover her medical expenses, she needs to remain single. Once the child is born, they will get married and the biological father wants to adopt so the child will carry his last name. What ...
Marriage itself can legitimize the child and birth certificates can reflect correct parentage. You wouldn't be having the father adopt his own child. See a lawyer as you are overcomplicating what can be done pretty simply, if done right.See question
I filed a chapter 7 one year ago and was discharged. I want to file a chapter 13 related to a lien. I also have student loans I want to discharge per undue hardship. I want to list my student loans on schedule j and ask to keep these loans outside...
Your recent chapter 7 means you can't discharge anything now, and Atlanta's judges apply a standard for Chapter 13 hardship student loan discharges so strict that even several years from now when you again could seek discharge, a discharge on student loans is unlikely. I am also wondering why your "lien" wasn't addressed in your 7. Sit down with a lawyer if you want to learn more because apparently whatever you have been reading doesn't resemble the law at all, or you're misreading it (not surprising because bankruptcy law is complex).See question

Generally legal errors, which this isn't, are appealable. Factual disputes, where you disagree on facts, usually are not, so simply disagreeing on evidence as you do here is unlikely to succeed. An appeal without a lawyer is usually doomed so you need a lawyer to appeal. And unless you paid for s court reporter you'll usually fail as you won't have a transcript to prove what was said. The real time you need counsel was before the tpo hearing as that's when you win or lose. Note your deadline for appeal is 30 days so if you plan to try see a lawyer today.See question
