Robert W. Hughes Jr.'s answer YES. This needs to be dealt with appropriately before you give away your rights to your father's land. Please contact an attorney specializing in probate work before it is too late.
P. Justin Thrailkill's answer Your fact pattern is confusing. By "served person" are you meaning the protected party? Is the protected party an adult? You need to sit down with counsel for a consultation and explain this situation in more detail.
P. Justin Thrailkill's answer This sounds like it has less to do with your sobriety than it does about your ability to follow court orders. Talk to counsel about where you need to go from here to defend this.
P. Justin Thrailkill's answer Custody will be addressed inside of the legitimation action. A positive DNA test alone is not enough to legitimize you. You still need to file a legitimation action and ask the Court to award you custody and visitation and to address support.
Regina Irene Edwards' answer You need to bring your order to an attorney to discuss. If your child is 18 and no longer in school, generally child support is not still owed, but that depends on what the child support paperwork says.
Regina Irene Edwards' answer There is no such thing as "best visitation schedule." What may work for one child, may not work for another. The schedule is created individually for each case taking into account the age of the child, proximity between parents, who has been the primary caregiver, special needs of the child, and about 50 other things. Talk to an attorney about your unique situation.
Robert W. Hughes Jr.'s answer As song as the will was witnessed by two people when it was signed, the will is valid. It would be better if it also contained a Self Proving Affidavit signed by a notary and meeting Georgia's standards. It would not hurt for you to pay a lawyer for 15-20 minutes time to review your document to assure you it conforms with Georgia law.
Regina Irene Edwards' answer The school doesn't have to allow you to come to the school whenever you want. In fact, in Gwinnett, the enrolling parent can restrict the other parent from having lunch with the child. If you want to change things, you need to file for a modification.
Ecleynne Mercy's answer No intent necessary. There’s a sign in front of the jail that says passing the guard rail. Now, if she did have a prescription and the pill is actually what was prescribed then the argument can be made. However, it may not be as simple as an explanation, you may need an attorney cause motions may need to be filed and argued or even a trial.
Ecleynne Mercy's answer Some Counties don't provide a copy of videos to the defense attorney or the defendant. They make them come in and watch the videos in the DA's office. You can schedule with your public defender a date and time to go watch the video together. I hope this helps.
Ecleynne Mercy's answer It depends on so many things. However, if your husband has a warrant in Georgia, they have the right to come pick him up. If your husband has an active warrant, he is in jeopardy of being picked up and held. For example, If your husband is stopped in Pennsylvania for a traffic ticket and the warrant shows up he will have to wait until Georgia decides whether they are going to pick him up AND when they actually pick him up. I have seen people forced to wait weeks for transport back to...
Ecleynne Mercy's answer Yes they do. The prosecutor has the burden of proving every element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. But while a defendant isn’t required to prove innocence in order to avoid conviction, the prosecution doesn’t have to prove guilt to the point of absolute certainty. And despite the general rule that the prosecution bears the burden of proof, there are instances when the burden shifts to the defendant (certain defenses). I hope this helps.
