Q. There is no custody agreement between my son and the mother of his child. Can she keep my son from seeing his child?
A: Yes. Your son needs to file for Legitimation of the Child and then he will pay child support and he has to ask for visitation and if the court determines if it is in the best interest of the child to visit with him then the court will order appropriate visitation accordingly.
Q. what petition can I file in the state of Georgia to regain physical custody of my son, I still have legal custody?
A: This is a very serious matter and you should have an attorney in order to petition the court for physical custody. Legal custody does not guarantee you physical custody and with physical abuse and criminal charges pending it may be very difficult for you to get physical custody so for the best chance you need to seek legal counsel. You will have to show that it is in the best interest of the child for that child to be returned to you and if the Judge disagrees, then you will not have physical custody without further investigation.
Q. My ex and I lived in Alabama. We got divorced in Alabama, the court ordered her to pay 428.00 a month in child support
A: If she finds a decent attorney, then she can have the judgement domesticated in GA and then both of you will be subject to the jurisdiction of GA. Whether she can get the support lowered after that in GA depends on whether there has been a significant change in circumstances and whether or not the GA courts will recognize her last modification attempt as an attempt within 2 years which is prohibited in GA and then she'll have to wait for 2 years to pass from the last modification to try again.
Q. Can a home be sold from under you, if you have been paying the taxes?
A: Who promised you all these things? Without title to the house, then you are a tenant and you only have rights under landlord/tenant law. The payment of taxes could be used as a payment of rent. You have rights under landlord/tenant law as a month to month tenant.
Q. How can I get my dog back from the people whoms care she is under?, they refuse to give her back.
A: Call the police to escort you so there isn't any trouble. The police, however, probably do not have any authority to take the dog and will say that this is a civil matter unless you file a police report and say the dog is stolen and the prosecutor issues a warrant for the people's arrest or some other order for the dog's return to you. If they don't return the dog at that time, then you will most likely have to file an action in New Jersey for return of the dog. I am not an attorney in New Jersey so you will need to seek counsel from an attorney who is licensed in NJ.
Q. I allowed a co-worker to move in and pay me 100/ week. It was to be temporary. How do I get him to move out?
A: You have to take him to magistrate court and file for an eviction. Don't let anyone stay at your house unless you want them to be a tenant which is what this person has done and now they have all the legal rights as any other tenant so you have to file for an eviction.
Q. Landlord will not return deposit. Have email where he said house looks good but it has been over 30 days still no return
A: You can take him to magistrate court to ask for your deposit back.
Q. Do I have to advise the court that I have moved in with my current boyfriend in a child custody/divorce case?
A: When there is a divorce there is usually a Standing Order that says that things need to stay as the status quo. You really need legal counsel on this since if you want custody of your kids you don't need to be living with someone who is a boyfriend regardless of your money situation.
Q. Have you ever had a judge to sign a. Order with no evidence of wrong doing to subject a parent to 4 hrs EOW SUPERVIsed?
A: It is within the Judge's discretion to do what is in the best interest of the child. If this Judge feels it is in the best interest of the child for you to have supervised visitation and that is what the order says, then you must follow the judge's order. A criminal record does not automatically deny or give you visitation supervised or otherwise.
