  • What can I do about custodial interference? Should I file a police report?

    In Georgia, I have court ordered visitation of my child in which I share joint legal custody but the other parent is the primary custodial. Can I file a police report in my County if they take the child out of state without my consent or agreement...

    Glen’s Answer

    It is NOT a police matter. Contempt is the only avenue but a contempt without a lawyer will likely fail. Since you can seek your legal fees in a contempt it's foolishly attempt one pro se.

  • How to post publication by newspaper?

    I want to publicly announce request for name change in the ledger enquirer. I was wondering, could someone please give me step-by-step instructions. I will file the petition tomorrow, the clerks are never helpful here.

    Glen’s Answer

    It is a serious crime for a clerk to give you legal advice. Since you are struggling with the easiest part of a name change (and the newspaper would have told you those steps) you should pay a lawyer to get your case done so you don't lose your filing and ad fees over a pro se misstep.

    Glen’s Answer

    Not paying it is not an option so you need to deal with it ASAP. There is no financial assistance. Discuss this with your lawyer. You don't want to be pro de in a GAL case.
