  • Do i have to be financially responsible if my husband gets arrested for anything?

    If my husband is arrested for DUI and maybe wrecks, am I financially responsible too? Would I need to be legally separated or divorced to be exempt from his liabilities?

    Glen’s Answer

    Georgia doesn't have legal separation. There are some possible circumstances where his DUIs could have a financial impact on you direct or indirect if you're married.

  • Without any notice, my ex filed papers and my child moved in w him within in a week. Is my child support terminated as well

    I do not work and the child support is sole income

    Glen’s Answer

    No one here has seen the papers and you need counsel now, as you likely are nearing deadlines to respond. Support and custody cannot permanently change without a great deal of paperwork and a court order. You are almost guaranteed a bad result without quickly getting counsel.

  • Personal loan co sueing me

    I called the loan co to talk about payment arrangements which they did accept. I was told I need to go to magistrate court to receive papers to stop further proceedings. They said as long as I make payments they would not go any further in sueing ...

    Glen’s Answer

    You have likely made a series of costly mistakes that may not be fixable. You are likely at, near or past deadlines to assert defenses or protect yourself and talking to the same people that are suing you is dangerous. Get and see a lawyer today ... Not soon - today. Then you'll be able to decide between any remaining options.

  • Is a letter signed and noterised giving up parental rights legal and binding?

    I am asking for a young lady who is due any day now. The father of the child wants nothing to do with the baby and the mom doesn't want him in the babys life or child support.

    Glen’s Answer

    Absolutely not. Neither parent can legally waive the child's right to be supported. The father in Georgia has no right to see the child anyway unless he seeks that in court. Her seeking such a foolish letter could be used against her as to her fitness as a parent because refusing child support is against the child's interests.

  • 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.
