  • Can a police run a person tag in the state of Georgia through GCIC when that vehicle is parked on hotel property as a guest.

    Said vehicle was parked at a hotel as a guest beside a police car that was not suppose to be at that location. The police car was outside of it county. There was no other cause to run the tag other than the said vehicle was from the same county t...

    Glen’s Answer

    The running your tag likely doesn't present a legal issue. The part of the story you inexplicably left out, what they did to you next, may present legal issues that do require counsel. Since you hid those we have no way to know, so call a lawyer today.

  • If my spouse filed for a divorce before I did, can I file for alimony?

    My spouse is having an affair. In addition, I discovered that my spouse filed for divorce in order move their new love into our home after I leave. If my spouse filed for a divorce before I did, is there any way I can receive alimony? Currentl...

    Glen’s Answer

    Your answer and counterclaim can seek not only alimony, but equitable division of assets and other relief. Fault, including adultery, is not usually the likely trigger for alimony, and other circumstances, certainly including income, are considered. Your response is due within 30 days of service and you gave other key deadlines. Pro se responses usually go badly, so you should see a lawyer immediately.

  • Can State Farm cancel my coverage due to an accident that was 3 points and the policy says 6 points?

    I was in a car accident last month I hit someone while trying to switch lanes and I ended up smacking into another car. The accident itself did not cause much damage. Yesterday I was notified that my insurance would increase. In the mail today I g...

    Glen’s Answer

    They've done you a favor. State farm, in my opinion, is one of the worst insurers with claims. An insurer can generally cancel you for any or no reason at renewal time. Use this as a chance to shop around.

  • Can I sue my father for Emotional Abuse and Neglect?

    I live in Georgia, and my father abandoned me and divorced my mother when I was under a year old, in 1996. He fled to Colorado and refused to pay the Child Support payments. When my mother took him to court sometime in 1996, he had received a l...

    Glen’s Answer

    I can't fathom any court allowing such a case. Courts can't make parents be good parents, and sadly this is something you will have to address through counseling. Getting rid of the desire to sue will be a huge first positive step in recovery. Best of luck to you.

  • How can I stop a judgment from National Collegiate Trust

    I have always paid all my student loans, and recently I received a lawsuit from National Collegiate Trust, a really rude credit bureau has been calling me and obtained a judgment against me, I asked for proof of the loan they refused to give me pr...

    Glen’s Answer

    It may be a scam and not a real creditor. Real creditors send paperwork. Additionally a judgment means there was a court case, and if there was one you would have been served with paperwork. If they call back, block their number and do not talk to them. When and if they send something show it to a lawyer.

  • How do I figure out if I'm divorced?

    My wife and I mutually separated in September 2012. She relocated to Virginia and I relocated to Georgia. In the fall of 2013 she asked me if I'd agree/ consent to getting divorced, to which I agreed. About a month later I received a child support...

    Glen’s Answer

    It appears you had a support case and no divorce. Since divorces are served and you never saw one, you need to get a divorce before planning marriage.

  • Is a house considered separate property in a Georgia divorce which was purchased after getting married with separate funds.

    I purchased a second home for $400,000 ten years after getting married with cash. The house was titled in my name when purchased and is still in my name. The $400,000 used to purchase the home came from separate funds I had prior to getting marr...

    Glen’s Answer

    Absent any relevant facts we don't have from your post you may see it treated as marital. That outcome was avoidable either via a premarital agreement, or even a post nuptial agreement when the purchase took place. Note that detailed facts can affect the analysis, and not all marital property is split 50-50. If you are facing divorce you should be discussing these issues with your lawyer.

    Father never payed child support he has been incarcerated I raised my kids till adults and now he is out and got a ton of money I feel he owes these kids

    Glen’s Answer

    Assuming you previously obtained a support court order that was not paid, amounts due under that order, plus interest, are collectable.

  • Is a husband's Roth IRA funded while married from the husband's separate property considered separate property in a divorce.

    I married in the year 2000. While married I made Roth IRA contributions of $2,000 in 2001, 2002 and 2003. The Roth IRA account is also in my name and has grown to $30,000, The contributions were made from a money market account in my own name ...

    Glen’s Answer

    Absent a prenuptial agreement to the contrary, an argument exists that the post marital contributions are divisible as marital property. Whether that answer proves correct depends on additional details you should share with your lawyer.

  • We had a parenting plan never signed by judge, now it's been dismissed and closed? What does that mean exactly?

    We had a parenting plan for sole custody made up by his lawyer. We signed them. He has been in contempt for a while so I finally went to the court house to find out how to set up a court date. They said they case had been dismissed and closed earl...

    Glen’s Answer

    Filing a case without completing it is a waste of time and filing fees. A dismissal means the case is over and a parenting plan never okayed by a judge is unenforceable. When you try again you'll start from scratch and should use a lawyer.
