She is mentally competent.
Sure. Depending on the facts and what your spouse seeks, which you need to share with your lawyer, you may be paying for some of that assisted living.See question
spouse receiving retirement, i am 60 F still working fulltime. married 32 years. i will not get my retirement from previous employer until im 65. my income flucuates some. i am an rn and get paid hourly.
Georgia is NOT a community property state - there is no "half." You and your spouse, depending on many factors you have not disclosed, including your health, income, education, expenses, assets, etc. my have equitable claims against an undetermined portion of each other's present income and retirement and assets. You will not get a useful answer online. An attorney will need to see detailed financials for both of you to assess the possible alimony and equitable division claims you can make, AND those your spouse may make against you.See question

It is far too early to evaluate a value on a case, and it is important to stress that every time you talk to the insurer without counsel, you are likely diminishing that value. Insurers will tend to lowball, often offering 20 cents or less on the dollar to people without counsel. The smartest thing you can do is to NOT accept the check, as you may release claims without knowing you did, and see a local south metro Atlanta lawyer ASAP. When your medical treatment is complete, only then can the case be properly valued. Be sure to also get prompt medical care as you won't be paid for needed care that doesn't happen or gets delayed too long.See question
my husband has been in prison for 3 1/2 years. We both agreed on a divorce so I had the papers served to him and now he's refusing too send them back... I'm trying too do it myself because where I work and with my medical condition,I cannot afford...
Realistically your choices are to see the case drag on without a lawyer or to hire a lawyer to help. In serving papers, you already prevented an uncontested case (that's not how you start one, as papers you serve are not sent back), so be aware that being your own lawyer is rather like having a cavity and saving money by fillingf it yourself without a dentist. Look for a lawyer that takes payments, or use a credit card, or seek help from family and friends. The peace of mind you will get from having someone else working on it may well be worth the cost.See question
My if she could move in with me I would like to know what legal steps I'd have to take it considering I am the non-custodial parent
It will take court case and judge's order. Whether it is possible and how expensive it will be depends on all the information you didn't give us, and do need to give your lawyer (and you are unlikely to succeed without counsel). Those details include (1) is there an existing order and what does it say, (2) does the mother agree on change of custody and child support and visitation, all of which must be addressed, (3) will the daughter agree, (4) your fitness as a parent, (5) your income and the mother's income, (6) if you were ever married to the mother, (7) if the child was legitimated in the absence of marriage, (8) certain expenses you and the mother have, (9) what county/state you and the mother live in, and (10) other factors. Best case scenario - you can be done in not much over a month. Worst case - it's expensive, difficult or unlikely, all depending on these factors.See question

You don't have a couple dollars? The court where your divorce took place can make you copies. Here in Georgia most courts charge 50 cents a page, plus about $2.50 to certify the copy. Just check with the court clerk.See question

If I am understanding your question you want to look for a new relationship. This is NOT the time. You also seem to be waiting on him to decide about a divorce - also a very bad decision. Your number one priority needs to be your children, and number two is you. The only way to protet you and the children is to go see a lawyer ASAP (and that means now). At the very least you need to be pursuing custody and support, and realistically, you may need to be starting a divorce. Be aware that nothing now keeps him from simply taking off with the children, and the relief from a TPO is temporary. Since a new relationship could affect you getting custody, that is absolutely a bad idea until you are divorced. Best of luck to you, and do also seek counseling to deal with depression, as that is impotant to address as well.See question
Evening, I filed for divorce in 2003 and I thought I was divorced. My ex husband has since remarried. I found out about 3 weeks ago that my divorce was never finalized and the lawyer here in the States said my documents are valid but doesn't sh...
Unless the old divorce is open, in which case your attorney may be able to finish it quickly, you'd have to file a new case in a state with jurisdiction. Georgia has one of the quickest divorce laws in the US for uncontested cases, but, even with your husband's cooperation, you can't finish in less than 31 days.See question
She took vehicle and is not returned. Phone and text has been usless
You didn't ask a question, but the way to settle this (and other issues), if you can't settle it yourself, is to get a divorce lawyer. Courts don't, absent divorce/separate maintenane, referee these type disputes.See question
My wife and I always agreed we would pay for our children's college education and have saved to do so. We have saved $100,000 in 529 plans but also saved approximately another $200,000 in CDs and stocks to cover the cost of college. Now that we ...
No. Absent an agreement, a judge cannot force payment for college. Having said that, divorces are fact specific, and a good lawyer may be able to argue for a division of debts and assets (or negotiate a settlement including college) that takes the situation into account.See question
