Going threw a breakup with girlfriend of 5 years. My child has been legitimized , but we never did a DNA test. Now some guy pops up saying she is really his and he wants a DNA. She is 2 years old. Will I loose all my rights to her if the DNA comes...
Assuming you properly went to court and legitimized the child, that makes you the legal father. A court CAN change that, but even with DNA testing, that may or may not happen, either because the DNA testing bacs you up, or the court simply doesn't choose to change things. Nonetheless, all this can affect your rights and change your world, and the child's, so you definitely need to see a lawyer.See question
I am getting divorced and I am representing myself. Will I need to prepare an opening statement?
Your question tells me you are headed for a train wreck. Pro se cases are usually disasters, and the opening statement is a minor but important piece. Have you subpoenaed and prepped witnesses, done all your discovery, done a solid pretrial order, etc? You have 100s of steps and you NEED a lawyer. You wouldn't do surgery on yourself, so why would you think you can do something well that takes lawyers many years of training to master, If this case is important to you, and you're asking a question like you asked, you should know you are way over your head.See question
Son legitamized but wants to come with dad because of physical and emotional abuse. But hes seven
While a 7 year old isn't likely to get much say in a decision, if what you say is true and provable, it could certainly have a major impact in a custody case. Pro se custody cases usually go badly, and you only get one chance to get it right, so meet with and hire a lawyer and do exactly what the lawyer tells you to do. The longer you wait, the less important the issue will look to a court, so treat it with importance and get counsel right away.See question

You've waited about 9 1/2 years longer than you should have, but get a lawyer, and file a probate case (likely a temporary administration as your initial vehicle) and from there do what the lawyer says.See question

If your mother is mentally competent and doesn't want to act, the options may not exist. But if her mental competence is in question, you may want to see a lawyer and seek guardianship and conservatorship in probate court to protect her and take action.See question
My husband has met a woman where he works an moved in with her an her kids without telling me an is now making threats to take my kids.. What rights do I have we are not even divorced or filed for one
Until and unless you file a divorce he has the right to do what he wants, so the only way to change that is to file divorce. You will need a lawyer, so start calling in the morning. Your lawyer can file appropriate paperwork to start the process of deciding custody, visitation, support and other issues. But right now, he can get the children - today - and go anywhere, so be sure to start a case ASAP.See question

Pretty simple answer here. At 18 you're an adult so you can move anywhere you wish very soon (in 3 months).See question
I owe around 3250 in delinquent payments. I had a lawyer suggest legal aid. I only make 892 a month and that is gone after i pay bills. Can you help me?
No one here is allowed to solicit you (AVVO forbids posting lawyers from a direct connect to you; you have to call lawyers). Depending on your income and county, Atlanta Legal Aid and Ga.. Legal Services make referrals to free or low cost BR attorneys. $3250 in debt may be too small to look at BR, but go through them to see.See question

While several area counties have forms, the forms could be problematic and you'd be better served to use a lawyer. And since a name change doesn't stop him from later seeking custody and visitation, a lawyer may offer better and more complete options like stepparent adoption, drafting a will with trust and guardianship provisions, etc.See question
