Q. I have a conditional discharge on my record for possession of marijuana.
A: You are probably eligible for a record restriction and that should take care of this for you. There is a new law in GA that has opened up the doors for over 2 million people who could not have their records restricted (i.e. expunged) under the old law so you should explore this option and that would be a good situation for you so you can restrict the arrest from your record.
Q. I was asked to leave an establishment bc I had my dog with me. He was in a shopping cart. There is not store policy.
A: Is your dog a service dog? If your dog is not a service dog and the store does not allow animals, then you can not have your dog on the store property. You say that there is not a store policy but are you talking about a posted policy? Whether or not the store actually has a policy regarding animals may depend upon the size of the store. If it's a smaller store, then there may not be an actual store policy. The store bears liability for you and your animal while on the property so unless you have a service dog, it would not be unusual for a store to ask you to leave with your pet.
Q. My friend got lockex up in georgia but texas has a hold on her how long do they have to come get her if she dont waive h
A: Your friend may be in jail a while depending upon what type of charges you are talking about for example are you talking about probation holds, misdemeanor crimes, traffic offenses, felony crimes, etc. The more serious the crimes in TX and in GA, then the longer your friend may be in jail. If your friend hires a competent attorney, then the time may be deducted by negotiation.
Q. my ex-moved from Georgia to Wyoming two years ago. I haven'tseen or spoken to the kidssince. what can i do .
A: The answer to your question depends on what is stated in the court order. What are your visitation rights? If the court order clearly sets out your visitation rights and he has taken the children to another state and you aren't able to exercise those rights, then you could file for a contempt action. Since this involves someone who has moved to another state, then this does complicate the situation in terms of jurisdiction, process of service, etc. so it would be important to have an attorney review all of your documentation before you file any action.
Q. I purchased a condo in Jan.'14. I called closing attorney, wired money into his escrow, closed w/seller's agent present
A: It is unclear from the facts you stated whether or not you had an actual real estate closing. If you have not closed on the property and title is not transferred to your name and you live there, then you need to have a closing or you are just a tenant on the property unless you have entered into some other agreement with the buyer to the contrary. If the closing attorney has disappeared with your money, then you have to have a paper trail of the funds being placed in that attorney's escrow account and your focus should be to find out what happened to your money and to the attorney. The State Bar of GA maintains the information on all attorneys and if an attorney has taken your money unlawfully out of their escrow account, then the attorney is subject to very serious consequences so you need to get in touch with the State Bar of GA if this in fact did happen to you and report this attorney.
Q. Seller's disclosure said no water ever in basement. First big rain ( 2 months after close) - we have water in basement.
A: Unfortunately, this is a common problem when buying property. You should talk to your real estate agent who represented you in the transaction to explain why the seller's disclosure said no water damage and the inspection showed water damage. Was there any discussion of this when you purchased the property? You can sue for specific performance but unless you want to give the property back, then that is not a good remedy for you. You can also sue for breach of contract but you would want an attorney to review all of the documents before you try and make this claim as all claims involving real property have to be brought in Superior Court (as opposed to small claims court) and this is a difficult road to navigate without legal counsel.
Q. CAN MY PROBATION BE REVOKE BECAUSE I CAUGHT A CHARGE IN PRISON.MY PROBATION DIDN'T SUPPOSED TO START INTO I GOT OUT.
A: If she was on probation and did not report, then she is in violation of probation and there would most likely be a bench warrant for her arrest.
Q. Can I ask the court to deny any visitation if the father has not paid child support in 7 years.
A: The answer to your question depends upon some important factors such as where the father resides and what your plans are to domesticate the judgement from the UK to GA.
Q. can i have my rights to own a gun being convicted of possession of tools during commission of a crime
A: It depends on what was involved in the original crime. If a weapon was involved, then you it likely that your rts. as they pertain to a firearm will not be restored.
