Venue, the place where a lawsuit must be filed can be in the county of the marital residence if filed within six months of separation or it can be filed in the county of residence of the defendant. Residence may still be in Thomas County if your husband has left the county because of imprisonment and not because he intentionally changed his residence. He would still be served in the county where he is now located by that sheriff. Call an attorney.See question
My mother is being charged with kidnapping my son. I never agreed to these charges however I did want my child returned. I don't want her to be charged at all being that I have my son back. Please help
Your child's mother should take the charge seriously and consult with an attorney immediately. Have her call a local attorney for a free consultation. You can certainly work with her attorney to speak with the DA to seek to have the charge dropped.See question

Under Georgia law a child born during a marriage is considered to be a child of the marriage. The hospital will not let your name be on the birth certificate. The mother should consider filing for divorce if appropriate prior to the birth. You could file a petition to determine paternity and legitimate if no divorce is filed. You should consult an attorney close to you for a free consultation to discuss further.See question

No. However, if you are on probation for DUI you may have to take random screens through probation. Talk with a lawyer or clergy about getting help if you have an addiction and need treatment.See question
My husband asked for a divorce yesterday. Today hes on a dating site looking for someone else. I have proof of it. We've been married 5 months. Can i get alimony from him? Hes also on disability.
An award of alimony in Georgia is up to a Judge or Jury based on all the evidence presented. There is no formula as with child support. Some of the factors considered include the income and resources of the parties, the length of the marriage, each party's respective earning power, health of the parties, cause of separation, etc.
Because you have been married a short time and your husband is on disability it may not be cost effective to pursue alimony. You should consult with an attorney to review all the circustances.See question

A friend was seriously drunk and exposed their privates in an acquaintances home the other evening. From my understanding, there were five witnesses to the event. It was alleged a two year old may have seen the event too. It does not sound like...
Your friend may be subject to a warrant for indecent exposure which is a felony and carries up to one year in jail and a $1000 fine. Voluntary intoxication is not a defense. I successfully defended another person in Thomas State Court last year but the case was difficult to handle at first. Judge Mitchell treats these cases very seriously. Your friend should consult an attorney to prepare for what happens if he is arrestted.See question

The answer to your question is controlled by the transportation clause included in your parenting plan. It is not likely that your fiancee is listed as a person to pick up and transport your child. In fact, you may have a "live in lover" clause that is common in this circuit that prevents you from having a non-relative overnight guest present with the child. The court certainly will not hold your ex in contempt if the order doesn' specifically provide that your fiancee is permitted to pick up the child. You might try seeing if your ex will allow a relative to pick up the child.See question
