96 Questions Answered
- Q. Divorce decree says kids can talk to the other parent through age appropriate devices. Is this appropriate for 4 yr old
- A: According to your statement, the divorce decree says "age appropriate devices." It's probably a safe bet that telephone qualifies, but it depends on what your judge defines such devices as appropriate at certain ages. You should consult with an attorney for a better opinion based on the divorce decree (and settlement agreement if there is one). ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
- Q. My son is upset at me and decide he want to live with his father. He’s 15. Is there a way I can stop this! Please HELPme
- A: If you are served with a modification action, you must answer it of course. As you seem to know already, Georgia allows children 14 and over to express their preference as to which parent they want to live with. That choice is presumptive and may be used to seek modification, time limitations excepting. However, if your son's choice is not in his best interests, the court may deny the petition. You may consider consulting with an attorney to discuss your options... and you should. ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
- Q. If someone has temporary guardianship of my daughter what are my parental rights
- A: A lot depends on why another person has temporary guardianship of your daughter and whether or not such guardianship is voluntary. At any rate, your question is so vague it doesn't permit an answer without further discussion. Consider consulting with an attorney to discuss the facts of your situation such that an attorney may provide you with viable options. ~ Kim Ebert, Attorney at Law, (678) 818-6543, serving Georgia, Florida, Hawaii and several Federal Districts.
