Q: what does 3 years probation to serve 60 days mean

State of Georgia charges are possession of meth

Robbie Levin
Robbie Levin answered on May 12, 2022

It means that you serve 60 days in jail, and then you are released to probation for the remainder of the 3 year sentence.

It’s basically a 3 year probation sentence that requires you to serve a little jail time before starting the probation part.

Theft by taking

Robbie Levin
Robbie Levin answered on Mar 28, 2022

If your attorney recently passed away, the Court will almost certainly give you time to obtain new counsel. However, it is important to hire someone as soon as possible. Your new lawyer will likely be able to persuade the Judge to grant some extra time to prepare.

It is possible that your personal injury lawyer also handles criminal cases. However, you would certainly want a criminal defense lawyer to handle your criminal case. Would you go to an eye doctor for a toothache?

Boyfriend was told he made too much money for an attorney denied public defender but can't afford attorney

Robbie Levin
Robbie Levin answered on Jan 31, 2022

Q: If I got married in Louisiana but me and my spouse lived in ga for a year together which state do I file for divorce?

We don’t have assists or kids to split and have not been together for over 12 years

Robbie Levin
Robbie Levin answered on Jan 21, 2022

Generally, the state where you got married is not a factor in where the divorce is filed. You file for divorce in the State where you/your spouse are currently living. Some states have residency requirements. In Georgia, you need to live here at least 6 months prior to filing.

If your husband won't sign paperwork, you can still get divorced. You will just need to file the appropriate paperwork and have the Court sign off on the divorce. It may also require a short court hearing. I would suggest obtaining a lawyer to help you through the process.
