Legal Answers
Q. Can I track my toddler when he’s with his dad that’s NOT on his birth certificate?
A: The question is whether the bio father legitimated the child or not. It’s a court proceeding. If the child is not legitimated, the father has no legal rights over the child - no right of visitation or custody.
Q. Good morning. I am currently seeking to divorce my wife but I live in Georgia and she lives in Florida.
A: If this is an uncontested divorce without children, i.e., you are in agreement on all issues, then you could file in Georgia and she could sign a waiver of jurisdiction and venue. If it's a contested divorce or the children are in Florida, FL has jurisdiction.
Q. Does my mother have any grounds for not returning my child after I revoke the power of attorney given to her previously?
A: The POA is likely invalid. Only a judge can assign or reassign custody.
