Q. So my brother is 17 but he is involved with a court case saying his grandmother is his legal guardian can he move out
A: He will need the consent of his guardian to move at anytime prior to his 18th birthday.
Q. Where am I suppose to file contempt of court in this scenario?
A: You file the contempt action in the court where the order was issued.
Q. So I just found out that my baby mama has a voluntary deportation order. I do not know when she has to leave the U.S..
A: Yes, she can. You need to act immediately as time is of the essence. You need to file a petition for legitimation and custody. Otherwise, you have no rights to the child and she can leave the country with her.
Q. How can I fix my daughter last name from where I was still married when I had her?
A: You can file a name change petition or the biological dad can file a legitimation action to change her last name.
Q. I just found out my children's grandmother filed a petition for dependency against me what is a petition for dependency?
A: You need to hire an attorney. A petition for dependency typically alleges that the children have been abandoned or neglected and are without a proper guardian. It can significantly affect your parental rights.
Q. I live in Georgia, and the non custodial parent lives in Florida and i have an order stating he must pay child support.
A: I agree with attorney Edwards. You are not likely to get any results until you hire an attorney and file for contempt. He can be incarcerated until he pays a significant purge payment.
Q. How long after child's birth does a man have to claim he is the father when his not on birth certificate
A: Whether you will be required to submit to a DNA test will depend on the judge. Some judges will not grant a legitimation without DNA testing, but most will if there is no issue of paternity. That is where neither party is contesting that you are the biological farther. In order to establish your rights, you will need to file a legitimation action in court. Once the legitimation order is granted, you can also be added to the birth certificate. The court can also establish custody and visitation and set child support.
Q. What forms Union County, Georgia requires for a non-contested divorce, no children, no assets, and cooperative spouse?
A: You will need to file the petition for divorce, verification, acknowledgment of service, settlement agreement, proposed divorce decree and a consent to try in 30 days to avoid any delays in issuance of the divorce decree.
Q. How long can my ex wife hold on to medical receipts for my daughter and still be able to collect?
A: It depends on what the order states. If there is no time limit in the order, then she can hold on to them and submit them later as long as they were incurred during the time period supper was due. However, a judge is not likely to hold you in contempt under those circumstances for not paying in full within 10 days.
