Q. I have DPOA of my mother. We are residents of FL. I have legal documentation from the doctors stating my mother is
A: Petition the court and show that you have custody of your mother.
Q. i need to leave the country is thats ok?
A: Do you have full custody and is there any restriction in the order for you not to leave the country (I assume you want to take the children?). After reading your further statement, then, yes, you could be in contempt of court if you are not available on the 2 days that you watch your kids. You should talk to your husband and see if you can work out a temporary arrangement and then have a judge sign off on the agreement so you don't risk being in contempt of court.
Q. can someone present case in probate if they think these is questionable/potential for undue influence
A: You always have the right to present your case to the court and if the court thinks there is undue influence it is in the court's discretion not to accept any testimony or evidence based on undue influence. A guardian for the person who can not speak for themselves may be appointed as well.
Q. I am on workman's comp and my employer wants me to sign something changing my stat from full time to part time. Is this
A: You need to consult with a Florida WC Attorney before signing anything ~ you may contact me at 770-865-8654 and I can immediately put you in touch with our Florida WC Attorney Affiliates for guidance. All consultations are free.
Q. My ex's arrears are $15000. Is there any way he can get out of paying it back?
A: Unlikely. He would have to petition the court to reduce the order but most courts won't do this so long as he is in arrears and he is now in contempt of court and could face jail time, payment of your attorneys fees, costs of litigation and legal interest if you take him to court. You can also contact Child Support Recovery if you can't afford a private attorney and they will give you guidance in this situation.
Q. Me and my ex-husband currently have split custody in Florida and I am trying to move to Texas. How do I get full custody
A: You will need to either enter into an agreement with your ex-husband and then make that a final order of the court, and if he won't agree, then you will have to petition the court to change the original order that gives you both joint custody.
Q. In process of settling with workmans comp.they sent paperwork but I have not signed it yet.do I still receive checks unt
A: You should consult an Florida Workers' Compensation Attorney before signing any documents to assure that you are receiving the proper amount of compensation, and to know exactly what you are signing. I understand that you are anxious to receive your compensation, but you might be signing valuable rights away in the process. The only one who will protect you from this is your Florida Workers' Compensation Attorney, and if you need one, then contact me at 770-865-8654 and I will immediately connect you with our Florida WC Affiliate Attorneys.
Q. Can i file a second answer after filing the first answer to a civil complaint in GA?
A: You can amend your answer.
Q. In the State of Georgia, can I be made to take a drug test while on probation, even if I refuse?
A: If you probation says that you need to drug tested, then you need to submit to the test. If you refuse, then you are in violation of probation and will go to jail immediately.
