Legal Answers

Q. Divorce decree says kids can talk to the other parent through age appropriate devices. Is this appropriate for 4 yr old
A: According to your statement, the divorce decree says "age appropriate devices." It's probably a safe bet that telephone qualifies, but it depends on what your judge defines such devices as appropriate at certain ages. You should consult with an attorney for a better opinion based on the divorce decree (and settlement agreement if there is one). ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
Q. My son is upset at me and decide he want to live with his father. He’s 15. Is there a way I can stop this! Please HELPme
A: If you are served with a modification action, you must answer it of course. As you seem to know already, Georgia allows children 14 and over to express their preference as to which parent they want to live with. That choice is presumptive and may be used to seek modification, time limitations excepting. However, if your son's choice is not in his best interests, the court may deny the petition. You may consider consulting with an attorney to discuss your options... and you should. ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
Q. If someone has temporary guardianship of my daughter what are my parental rights
A: A lot depends on why another person has temporary guardianship of your daughter and whether or not such guardianship is voluntary. At any rate, your question is so vague it doesn't permit an answer without further discussion. Consider consulting with an attorney to discuss the facts of your situation such that an attorney may provide you with viable options. ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
Q. I have an ongoing child custody issue with a non biological father who is listed on the birth certificate.
A: Under the facts as you've stated them, I don't see termination of parental rights or adoption as a reasonable expectation on your part but I don't know enough to state definitively. I don't quite understand some of what you've written so it's tough to address things much further. Look, it's a really HIGH bar to terminate a parent's rights. Whether or not a man is the biological father or not has nothing to do with whether or not he's the legal father. You may consider consulting with an attorney to unpack what you're talking about and provide you with reasonable options. ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
Q. Prenup to protect income from previous marriage child support obligations -ASUME
A: So your inquiry is rather specific. I'm not exactly sure about what you think a pre-nup will accomplish in this circumstance. People cannot contract away their obligation to pay child support, if they have one. However, if you consult with an attorney to verify the facts first, I think you may be pleasantly surprised. A pre-nup is a great idea for a whole host of reasons. That too is worth talking about with a professional. ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
Q. After judge Sings off on a required to complete Parenting classes, what is the time frame given to complete it?
A: A Parenting Class is always required in any domestic relations action including children. If it was a temporary parenting plan and there's still a final hearing in the future, then ideally before the next hearing. Your attorney will let the judge know. If the by judge signing off you mean on a "final judgment" or "divorce decree," then you should discuss your post-judgment options. ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
Q. As part of a deal for my international custody case the opposing party is wanting temporary custody given to them.
A: Yes, talk to your attorney about your concerns. He works for you. If that still doesn't resolve the issue, you may consider a consult with another attorney to discuss your options. ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
Q. How to enforce court order for visits in GA from NE jurisdiction
A: First, you may wish to consult with a local attorney here to review the language of the order(s) that award you visitation. A competent attorney in this manner will also provide you options. Hopefully both personal jurisdiction of the other parent and the order(s) of which you speak are the same State. ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
Q. My granddaughter is in foster in Georgia she was moved into Florida to be fostered by my mother can she do guardenship?
A: You're in luck. I'm licensed in Florida and Georgia. I disagree with what the DFCS employee said. The issue really is whether your daughter will consent to the Guardianship of her child. If the answer is yes, there's really no reason that a Guardianship action cannot be had in Florida even if Florida is not the homestate of the child. The caveat with this is where is the father? There are also some important financial support issues to consider regarding State funding too. If you wish to pursue this, I suggest you consult with an attorney. ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
