Legal Answers
41 Questions Answered
Q. if my 17 year daughter leaves home without my say so can she get in trouble with the law? can i do anything since she 17
A: In Georgia 17 is considered an adult under the law.
Q. How long do I have to wait to get purchase a firearm after I completed my first offender probation
A: You have to wait until the judge issues an order discharging you from probation. Call your probation officer and tell them your sentence is over and ask for your discharge paperwork from First Offender. Probation will then contact the judge and get them to sign off on your discharge.
Q. If you are arrested for something petty while on felony probation & have to schedule a hearing with probation is it bad?
A: Any violation of the law while you are on probation can cause your probation sentence to be revoked and the judge to sentence you to jail. Driving with a suspended license is a misdemeanor, so it is not as bad as if you got a new felony. However, depending on the judge, the judge may revoke you to jail. You should consult with an attorney.
