If you leave your mother to go and live with your father without a court order, your father would technically be kidnapping if he refused to produce you back to your mother. If you want to live with your father the proper way to go about that is for your father to either file to modify an existing... Read more »
Dad put a no contact order on mom meaning no contact should be made between mom and child. Meaning mom can’t pick up at school child right?
answered on Mar 6, 2023
Correct. "No contact" means just that. It generally also means no communication by phone, internet, text message, etc. and judges and the law take violations of such orders very seriously--meaning the mom should too.
They have been in foster care for 18 months and talking about termination because their father is on drugs. But I have everything that was required in order for my kids to come home.
answered on Jan 30, 2023
If you are still living with the father after 18 months of your children being in foster care, the Court has likely determined that the children can't be released back into your home, if the father is not sober. There appear to be some details that have been left out if the Court is... Read more »
I have custody and there is no paperwork stating I dont.
answered on Jul 13, 2022
You can ask a Sheriff to go with you to where the child is located, after showing your order establishing your legal custody rights. If the Sheriff won't comply, you can swear out a warrant with a Magistrate or police for interference with custody.
If the child refuses to go with you,... Read more »

No. See O.C.G.A. section 16-11-62. While Georgia is a one-party state, requiring the consent of only one party to a telephone conversation to record that conversation, Georgia requires the consent of all parties to record a video chat (i.e. FaceTime) in a "private place and out of public...

We cannot do anything for you because your "question" makes no sense. Try again and ask a specific question in proper question format.
My hubby showed for the TPR hearing, I did Not. Apparently, our rights WERE terminated. He didn't sign any paperwork, and, as I stated, I did not even go. Can our babies be adopted out without even our Knowledge? Also, can we adopt our own kids?!
answered on Oct 28, 2021
If your rights were terminated, the children can be adopted with no notice to you.
She was accused to be with a boy that is 18 and committed armed robbery. She was taken to Fulton county juvenile detention center, they may try her as an adult and we are unsure of what to do.

It may be possible to get her a bond. You need to hire an attorney ASAP.

It would appear the only way you are going to move forward is with the assistance of legal counsel. Meet with an attorney as soon as you can to discuss your options.
answered on Aug 20, 2021
Absolutely. Find and retain an attorney who is experienced in handling cases involving DFCS.
answered on Aug 15, 2021
Not likely, but you may want to post in the criminal law section.
answered on Jul 20, 2021
We would need to know more about your case in order to provide you with guidance. You may want to consult with an attorney who can review the case in detail and present you with the right route to address this.
I’m 17. I’m two months away from being 18. I’m moving out and teaming with a trusted friend as a roommate and I’m going back to work and I have a small business as well. I just don’t want to be at home anymore. Is there not much a policeman can do since I’m so close to being 18? I... Read more »

Forget emancipation. Not enough time to make that work. Until you are 18, your parents rule the roost. Should an adult help you move out before you are 18, that person could be charged with interference with custody. It's only 2 months. Focus on the positive things you should be doing... Read more »

Your daughter doesn't have an appeal appealable issue. She simply needs to revoke/terminate/end the guardianship in a signed writing. The Division of Family and Children Services did not initiate a petition of protection nor did they seek termination of your daughter's parental rights.... Read more »

You mis-posted your question as being one dealing with GA law. Still, your question is one that any attorney anywhere could answer. A person who has reached the age of 18 is NO longer a child. That person would be an ADULT. An adult can move, live, etc. wherever they choose to live. No... Read more »

You and/or your grandson have options. Without more information, it is hard to answer whether or not he is entitled to emancipation. You may also have grandparent custodial rights. You should seek out a lawyer knowledgable in these areas.
answered on May 7, 2021
I'm sorry. Your question does not make sense. It is incomplete.
Specifically, mental abuse. A lot of insults, and not allowing the child to have friends or a love life (child is 16). Punishments for unusual things like accidentally making a mess with food.
answered on May 3, 2021
You could expose yourself to being arrested for interference with custody if you take in a minor with permission of the parents. If the child needs help, you can contact authorities in your area who can investigate.
How can she do it quickly
answered on Apr 22, 2021
I'm sorry, but I do not hold out much hope that she will be successful. In 31 years of practice, I have personally known of only 2 emancipations being granted. She must be able to show that she has gainful employment and can pay for everything she needs, rent, car, insurance, food, medical,... Read more »

You can take the step to terminate the temporary guardianship. An attorney can help you with this process.
