  • Driving with no insurance

    I was driving to work in Feb 2016 and was involved in an accident in Ellenwood GA. The police put nobody at fault. I gave the officer the insurance card I had on hand but later found that it was invalid and my coverage had lapsed. I met with the o...

    You can be jailed, and face large fines and lose your license. Getting insurance before your court date, and bringing a lawyer to court ups your chances of minimizing consequences.

    Your wages and bank deposits can be seized. But you don't go to jail. In some cases a bankruptcy lawyer can help you eliminate the debt.

  • When I'm 16 can I move out legally? I was wondering if I stay with my friends & finish school. Can I move out (Georgia)

    I want to move out next year. I'll be 16, I have a place to go if I do. I will be supported, I will finish highschool, and I'll have all the needs I need to live. Is it legally possible without premission from my grandparents.(legal guardian)

    Glen’s Answer

    Absent a court order, which is unlikely, you cannot move until you are 18. If you try, you likely end up in juvenile detention and those who take you in can go to prison for interference with custody.

  • Can I sue a lawyer for withdrawal from my case without her letting me know that she did at my final hearing

    I raise my nephew from a baby until now he 13 year old,his mother wanted him back,I hired this female lawyer, this custody battle went on going on 3 years, at my final hearing, I learn at the last minute she withdrawal from my case and I lost my c...

    Glen’s Answer

    No. You lost your lawyer by not paying fees when due. Think about it...would you go to work if your boss didn't pay you or paid you late? Your lawyer also has a family and bills just like you. What you left out of your post matters too. The withdrawal required the lawyer to get the Judge's ok, so the issue was already decided against you, and while the notice period is short, your notification did allow you to challenge withdrawal, even though the court probably would have still allowed it. While it is unfortunate that you lacked funds and lost, that wasn't your lawyers fault.

  • Is it possible to get my ex wife completely out of my life and make it to where she cannot harass me or call me and threten me

    My ex wife calls repeatedly sometimes if I dont answer she will call hundreds of times until i respond she constantly thretens me and she thretens to ruin my new relationship. I have Two boys with her and I pay sometimes over half my paycheck ever...

    Glen’s Answer

    While you could spend a lot on lawyers, get appropriate court orders, etc, and may have some good cause to do so, I would respectfully suggest that escalates and worsens problems. You share children, and if you put them first, as you should, it is smarter to develop a thick skin and shrug off verbal problems, stop thinking of it as a battle, and be the bigger grown-up. That ultimately is what your kids want and expect from you. While it seems hard and even unfair, it is, as a coparent, the right move. You will badly mess up your children for life with any other approach. Return calls before she has to call over and over; if calls get stressful use email and texts more. Never escalate and never respond to a threat and remember some day a judge may see and hear every word. Since you fo share kids, your goal should be one and preferably several conversations daily to see how the routine if their day is going, and you should be initiating many of those before she calls. Good luck. I strongly disagree with the out of state lawyer vehicle suggested a restraining order on your facts...that's a bad move in my opinion.

  • Parental alienation has been proven against my soon to be ex, now what?

    Currently, my soon to be ex has custody due to a bogus TPO that he brought against me for his own gain. He's been telling the kids that I don't want to see them or have anything to do with them. A court appointed therapist has proven that he's be...

    Glen’s Answer

    Each time you use the word bogus and TPO together you alienate your judge, so even if it is contrived, please know that how you expressed it in your post works against you. You should do literally nothing, and your attorney should be the one doing things. Hopefully you have one, because arguing parental alienation pro se tends to go badly and lock in a bad outcome.

  • How can I find out if I am a beneficiary of my father-in-law's will?

    I am a surviving spouse of a deceased son whose father died 11 months ago. I believe I am a beneficiary in his fathers' will.

    Glen’s Answer

    Check with the probate court to see if a probate was filed. The entire file is a public record and you can get copies.

    If no probate was filed, see a probate lawyer and discuss whether you should spend money to further invest or file court paperwork.

    Bear in mind few people in your situation are named in wills.

    The answer may be buried in your sales contract and note. If you don't see it. Let a lawyer do some research to check things like the secretary of state, bankruptcy filings etc

  • Can I ask for the visitation to be modified?

    My son's father had visitation. He's supposed to get him on Fridays, however, her might show up on Saturday and it's after he gets off work. He doesn't have a set time off, so he will text me when he's off and gets upset when I'm not able to leave...

    Glen’s Answer

    Not using all one's visitation is NOT contempt. Now a warning...many judges will be annoyed - at you - if you escalate his poor behavior into s modification. In a worst case scenario he could gain rather than lose parenting time. In a best case scenario he gets a lecture and all if you get ciparenting classes after you spend lots of money. Modification csn also have side effects if support goes down or up. Meet with your lawyer to discuss civil ways to deescalate as a court case will lessen communication and could produce more discord. A polite civil letter from your lawyer would save you thousands and may calm the waters down. In other words. Your wanting to return to court is a last resort, not a next step. Based on your post. This is not condoning hi behavior but it's likely smart.

  • Can I prevent a civil judgement from affecting my credit score/ report and if so, how?

    Glen’s Answer

    The filing itself is a public record. How it is resolved and how soon can affect greatly what impact it will have. Don't attempt this without a lawyer. Your time window to respond is very short and getting the response wrong can be unfixable. Note that unless you committed a crime and didn't have insurance you should have reported the accident and the suit and they provide the lawyer. Your offer to settle violates your insurance contract so that also may be a big mistake. As this is really an insurance or car accident matter I changed the topic from credit repair.
