My mom left me at home for almost 6 months by myself and I went to school for the rest of the school year until the COVID broke out. She gave me permission to stay at my friends house for the rest of summer until I was ready to go with her to Florida where she was at. I asked her permission to go... Read more »
I’m sorry you are going through this. Until you are 18, your parent calls the shots on where you live. Perhaps you can try speaking with her again about this in a calm manner, since you are three months from being 18. But if she doesn’t agree to it, then you have to go with her until you are...Read more »
I agree with Mr. Wood. I would also consider the additional complications which the panic over corona has created. I have not had to worry about unaccompanied minor air travel for a few years now. I have zero idea how the current situation has changed airline policies regarding UMs. The changes to...Read more »

It is unfortunate to hear about your brother’s illness. The answer to your question depends on whether his rights as a parent were terminated and the children were officially (legally) adopted by the stepfather. It is best to contact an attorney who can assist you with the specifics of your...Read more »

The parents are divorced and have joint custody. They did not go to court; they had an agreement with their own individual lawyers and counsellors. Mom has overall medical decision but would have to pursue through the courts.
Have you discuss the issue with the other parent? You may want to do that and see where that parent stands on the issue. Beyond that you may want to consult with an attorney who can review the facts of the case in detail and present you with the options. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558
I submitted a Petition pro se for my incapacitated son, I am legal guardian/POA/mother. The judge dismissed the Petition because I "am not a lawyer" although I submitted case law/GA Statute to show I was allowed to do so in exceptional cases such as ours. He did not read the Petition,... Read more »
I am pregnant with the petitioner's child and the petitioner claims I am stalking him and that it is not possible that i'm the mother of his child. He is also trying to establish a pattern of violence via two isolated incidents when I was emotional and anxious.
I am so sorry to hear about your situation. It sounds like you have quite a lot going on in your life right now. It also sounds like you have some exposure to the TPO actually being granted. Many times as attorneys we are able to negotiate and get non-traditional solutions for clients. I would...Read more »
He said he filed for custody (this just happened june 17) and is refusing to bring him back. He will not even tell her where her son is, and he living with his new girlfriend. My daughter and him are not divorced.
My husband's ex moved his child to South Carolina from Georgia 6 months ago. The original order was filed in Georgia. He wants to modify visitation but isn't sure if or how to transfer the jurisdiction of the case to South Carolina. What is the motion called that he'd have to file to... Read more »
The case must be filed in Georgia. Georgia is the only state that has jurisdiction over the case. A Georgia judge may have the option to terminate its own jurisdiction and allow a case to be filed in South Carolina, but that is unlikely after only 6 months.
He said he filed for custody (this just happened june 17) and is refusing to bring him back. He will not even tell her where her son is, and he living with his new girlfriend. My daughter and him are not divorced. She has been in ga with the son for 8 months
