There is a difference between legally ok and morally ok. You would not want him to do this to you (as he is also legally allowed to do.) It also could backfire on you in a custody case. Unless there is a history of domestic violence and your safety is in danger, you need to inform him and have...Read more »
I understand preschool is optional and per Georgia Compulsory law children aren’t required to attend school until 6. Dad has educational tie breaker, mom has primary physical custody. Parents previously made a written agreement per email for children to a school and after mom paid tuition and... Read more »
Tiebreaker means the parties are supposed to consult and confer, but the educational tiebreaker can make the final decision, even if it goes against prior informal agreement. Father should have consulted with Mother first, but ultimately, he gets to make the final call.
In our divorce papers she has final decision on education. They have been in the same school for years but she recently moved to a nearby county and wants them to go to school there. She never asked me, I found out from the kids. I asked her about it and she says she has final say and is moving... Read more »
Your agreement should spell out whose school district controls where they go. In the absence of that, you probably both have the right to enroll them in school, based on the 50/50. You likely will not be able to resolve it through court before school starts, so unless you can prove there's a...Read more »

I do not... Read more »
You need to speak with an attorney about your case so they can research. I do not recommend calling the police unless a child is in danger and it can be confirmed that he doesn't in fact have a custody order. An attorney can research this for you.

Given the short length of the marriage, it is unlikely that he will have to give you any more money if you already recovered what you say he owed. You should contact an attorney about an uncontested divorce.
We sent the papers in back in June, but it could take up to 10weeks for his name to officially be added to the birth certificate, can i go ahead & get child support or will i have to wait until his name is officially on the document?
Our divorce was finalized 7 months ago, and the judge ordered him to pay me some money. I am wondering if he still has to pay me or not, and what do I need to do next? I have tried to call bankruptcy lawyers, but everyone I have talked to says they work for the people that declare bankruptcy, not... Read more »
A travel deviation is discretionary. You should consult with an attorney. It is possible that even though your order is 2 years old, the support could increase if your income or the child's expenses have gone up, or if the mother's income has gone down.
We were never legally married, lived together 8 years, I am legitimized, pay child support and a court order to have my daughter every week but my ex will not ever allow me to get her. What should my first step be?
Contact an attorney about filing for contempt. Before you do, send a text indicating you are going to exercise your parenting time at the next scheduled time and you will sue her if she does not allow it.
Him cheating doesn't mean that you will get alimony. Alimony is based on a variety of factors, including his income and yours and whether or not you financially need alimony and if he can afford to pay it.
You aren't going to get a credit for anything. If the case is reviewed, the child support may go up. There is no way to tell. You should consult an attorney who can run a calculator for you and give you advice about whether you are paying too much based on the income information of both...Read more »
