What do I do? The judge ordered him to pay an exact amount of my attorney fees and I paid the rest. Now he isnt paying and my attorney is trying to make me pay saying that he isnt so now I have to. Even though he signed an agreement and so did a judge. The case has been closed for over a month.
We live in Walton County, GA. She agrees to everything but she won't sign. How can I get around this so I can divorce her. She is hinting that she wants the marriage to last 5 years so she can get alimony. We have no kids. She can have all the property. I just want out. I am doing this pro se.
We are both on the lease, she has told me she wants me to move out within 60 days. I know she is seeing a coworker but don't have photo/video evidence. I understand bedrooms and bathrooms are off limits. Are common areas open for surveillance without the other family members being aware?
I need to know what the laws are for someone that is in prison and their wife is wanting to file for divorce. What can he do to keep from losing what him and his wife has built and where can I go online to look up what his rights are to be able to send to him?
O.C.G.A. 19-5-1 through O.C.G.A. 19-5-17 are the statutes that govern divorce in Georgia. As far as what he can do to protect his rights, that will depend on the specific facts of the case. The judge will look at the specific facts of the marriage, the conduct of the parties during the marriage,...Read more »

You need to speak with an attorney about your situation. No one can give you advice about whether your divorce is proper and / or if you have any recourse about the funds taken until they review your paperwork and discuss your case with you.
