Yes. Evidence can be admitted by way of video or verbal testimony. Therefore, the officers involved in the traffic stop could simply testify to what took place (what they observed) and it would be up to the judge or jury to determine if that verbal testimony is credible. As you might imagine,...Read more »

After researching it, I note that Butts County is in Georgia, not Florida. Whether it is appropriate for the judge to charge you to file your letter. You should ask your question in Justia > Ask a Lawyer > Georgia; it is not a Florida question.
The answer to this question will depend on what is stated in the Probate Court Order and also the powers stated in the will. You may be required to take additional steps before transferring the title to real estate. If so, missing these steps would affect the title.
My mother lied multiple times on a petition to take my kids. She said I abandoned my kids when I did not. She kicked me out and I let my kids stay with her to have consistency but I was there every day with them, picking them up from school and caring for them until they went to bed. And on...

Couple was living separately for 10 years, have no children, and the decree provided ~50/50 split of assets. Does the surviving spouse still have all the rights as a primary beneficiary if the other spouse dies intestate? Next of kin are surviving siblings.
If a couple is living under a separate maintenance agreement when one of them dies, the couple is considered married for all purposes of inheritance. hose rights however can be altered by the terms of the separate maintenance agreement.
US citizen (Georgia resident at time of death) had a land in France. He had a will but that specific property was not included in Will. What inheritance law applies to this property? Georgia law or French law? I would appreciate if you quote the georgia law section that mentions that.
The Residuary Clause of the Will includes non-devised real property. So the Residuary Beneficary owns the land. You will have to hire a French attorney to cure title there, but I am sure a certified copy of the Probated Will is necessary for ancillary administration.
The beneficiary needs to hire an attorney to research what has happened to date in the probate case and possibly petition to have the executor removed and replaced is he or she is not doing his or her job.
