Peter N. Munsing's answer Contact a member of the Ga. Trial Lawyers Assn who handles workers comp in the county where it happened--they give free consults and can best advise your daughter of her rights.
David Edward Boyle's answer Any penalty imposed would be limited in time to the maximum time allowed under the law which for ordinances may be 60 days or 6 months. But you would need to check the city or county ordinance where you live.
Laws and guidelines regarding barking dogs are typically based on the bylaws of the city or town in which you live. The bylaws can usually be accessed on the city or town's website.

Stephanie E. Emanuel's answer Well, you can certainly contact a lawyer for a free consultation to discuss your situation and see what answers they give you. While you are staying at his place you should find other accommodations. I am limited to what I can answer in a public forum, which is why I am telling you to contact a lawyer for a free consultation so that you or we can go over your situation and options in details.

Peter N. Munsing's answer It's theft so if they want to have the police find you then you are looking at a criminal charge. My advice: let the humane society know and let them handle it. If it is abuse they can step in. If not, you need to back away.
William Head's answer Arrest and conviction records for criminal cases are controlled by federal and state law. If your mugshot and fingerprints were obtained, you HAVE a "record."
Whether that offense is ever removed from your record depends on the naure of the plea proceedings, and what is agreed and made part of the criminal record. Georgia law limits what cases can obtain "record restriction."
Your best bet is to NOT try to represent yourself. Get a local criminal defense lawyer to try to help...
Peter N. Munsing's answer You can only get the market value of the pups if you can prove they would have survived had the hospital used extreme measures--which requires expert testimony that will cost you more than the market value of the dogs. Sorry, but time to let go of this one.
Peter N. Munsing's answer If their dog destroys your fence they own cost of repair. As it's a neighbor, I'd suggest run it through your insurance then they go after him. Unfortunately your dachshund there's little value the law gives.
Peter N. Munsing's answer If you have homeowners, report it to homeowners. If she sues you must respond. If you have insurance,tell them by phone, send them by fax and certified mail a copy of whatever you get.
Peter N. Munsing's answer Ga. law as far as I know says that if your business allows it, they can bring their pets in except in food stores. it's up to your manager/owner. You can ask for reasonable accomodation but that only means if they can change your work area. They don't have to exclude people with pets because you are allergic any more than they have to exclude heavy perfume users who cause some people to have asthmatic type reactions. Some malls allow pets--some don't.
David Alan Wolf's answer Most cities and counties have the local ordinances online. A good resource / website is municode.com Laws vary from State to State and even City to City. You can also visit the local animal control website or contact animal control to find out more information. Good luck.
Mr. Robert Neal Katz's answer If Savannah Cat's are prohibited in Georgia, it is very, very unlikely that you can obtain a license to simply have one as a pet. I would also discourage you from expending money on counsel fees trying to obtain the right to own the animal. The result will likely be just a lot of money spent and no right to get the animal. Also, if you own the animal, your insurance coverage may not cover any injuries or damages caused by the animal. Accordingly, if the animal did harm someone or property, you...
