Estate is in Georgia and deceased has a will, but the primary beneficiary is deceased wife. If there are no secondary beneficiaries listed, how do the assets of the deceased get divided? Deceased is survived by 2 children and spouse after first wi...
I'd have to see the will's exact wording to be certain, and I'm a bit cionfused by your post (did the will leave things to an ex-wife, and he married again, which also affects the answer?). It sounds like the spouse and children each get 1/3, with an exception - a spouse and also a minior child can seek some or all of the estate via year's support. If you're one of the potential heirs, you'd be well-advised to sit down with a lawyer asap.See question
Trying to order my birth certificate so my legal name would be what was on my BC not what my name is now right?
I'm not sure I understand your question. Legal names can be changed, so are you saying yours was changed since birth, and if so, why? Regardless, that doesn't affect you getting your birth certificate.See question
I found out through social media that my ex is using marijuana while pregnant with our child. I had her passwords from when we dated and I screenshot all the conversations regarding her using and buying in case there was a chance it could be used ...
Marijuana use by itself isn't going to win or lose a custody case, because many factors are involved, and if it does affect custody it does not preclude joint custody. It may still matter - possibly a great deal. You'll want to see a lawyer and preserve your evidence, and the lawyer will tell you if the evidence is helpful and usable.See question
I have messages where she refuses to give her address or sign papers out of spite. We have no children together and have been separated for over 2 years. The judge denied my notice of publication before I knew all this.
Your divorce is not uncontested. And if you have messages from her, she almost certainly CAN be found, which would explain denial of the publication order. Your attorney, and you need one, will know how to do the required dillligent search and will likely find a way to get her served.See question
I was at a friend of mines business throwing a Frisbee and it hit me in the mouth and broke out two of my front teeth and I now need implants. Is he as the property owner with insurance responsible for the claim?
You posted this as a car accident and it obviously isn't, so I will try to move this to the personal injury area of AVVO.
The property owner as a business is likely NOT responsible unless he threw the frisbee, allowed it to be thrown or had a reason to forsee the injury (it may not hurt to make a claim, but I suspect insurance is not likely to pay in that situation absent the things I mentioned). The person who threw the frisbee may or may not be liable. If the cost is significant on the implants, see a lawyer.See question
My sister grossly mishandled my father's estate. My siblings and I took her to court. We have had a court hearing and have a court order signed by the judge awarding us money. The sister who was executor of the estate never hired an attorney and t...
Not all judgments are collectable, and a judgment is more likely to be collected with legal counsel. Some attorneys may be willing to accept a collection matter for a percentage of the recovery.See question
I fell (May 2016) outside of a McDonalds as I entered the entrance ramp. I fell on my knees and landed to my right side of my face hitting the concrete. A witness saw what happened. The witness asked if I was okay and came inside to tell MGR wh...
Companies don't pay moral claims. TYhey pay legal claims. Falling does not mean you have a case. Whether you have a case depends on whether the fall was due to something negligent McDonald's did. Many lawyers handle such cases, and they are difficult to handle. Although one lawyer turned you down, others may or may not agree, so get a second opinion and do not deal directly with the insurer at all.See question
Two children involved. Joint custody dangerous for children.
Atlanta has many superb divorce lawyers, some here on AVVO. Ask friends and family for referrals, and also use the find a law tool here to research lawyers. Unless there has been a clinical diagnosis of mental illness, avoid using terms like sociopath, and when you speak to lawyers be prepared to discuss actual details rather than general terms, as that will prove far more useful to counsel.See question
I don't know if I have a case. My husband abandon me last year in March. I didn't have enough money to pay the bills I had to take out loans so I could pay bill that was in his name. He did leave them on for a while then 1 by 1 they got cut off...
I don't kniow what you mean by do you have a case or by divorce on your own. If you want a divorce, you have to file and serve him with one, or he must agree if it's uncontested. Either way you obviously need a lawyer. In that divorce various issues, which may include debts and other things that you didn't mention, will get addressed.See question
My ex and I have joint custody of our daughter, who I have a phenomenal "Daddy/Daughter" relationship with. My ex has pretty much been in violation of the order since we got it two years ago, and I have a contempt case pending against her. She wan...
You have a lawyer who knows the actual contents of court orders we've never seen, and details we don't have. A wild guess with none of that information here is impossible and you need to ask your lawyer.See question
