- Q. The child lives in Ga. The father is trying to file for custody in Ny. What are ga laws on where he has to file?
- A: The mother should get a local NY lawyer immediately to have the case dismissed. If the child has lived in Georgia more than six months prior to the father filing for custody, Georgia should have jurisdiction.
- Q. Can a father file for Child Support if hes listed on the birth certificate and the child lives in his home?
- A: The father should do everything at once to protect the child's future. File for legitimation, child custody (seek sole legal and physical custody) , and child support all in one proceeding.
- Q. my x spouse after 15 yrs of paying child support is req an increase. I do make more $ now and have 2 add children. right
- A: You should think about retaining an attorney, especially if she has one. Also, the court will consider the fact that you have two younger children. It is unlikely that there will be any argument that will allow the custodial parent to increase child support because the child wants a car. A car is a luxury.
- Q. I am a father and I need know what are the steps to get custody of my son? I wasn't married to my ex.
- A: You need to legitimate your son if you haven't already and file for visitation or custody. This is filed in the county where your son lives. The Defendant/Respondent is the mother.
- Q. Can a property manager file eviction if your lease has ended? Shouldn't there only be a late fee?
- A: It all depends on your lease and whether you paid rent for the new month. If your lease automatically renews to month to month or longer if nobody terminates the agreement, you have to continue to pay rent in accordance with the lease. If you do not, the landlord can file a dispossessory. If the landlord gave you a proper nonrenewal notice and you continue to remain on the premises, a dispossessory can be filed to remove you from the property.
- Q. Can the courts in Ga make childs father spend time with her for example get her every weekend?
- A: You can file a petition for child support without having him obtain visitation. Courts normally don't order visitation time unless the noncustodial parent requests it.
- Q. ex has my children for summer visitation,he said he doesnt have to pay child support while they are with him? Yes or no?
- A: Unless the court relieved him from paying child support in the order, he has to continue to pay. As a result, if he refuses to pay, file a motion for contempt.
- Q. Can a Georgia landlord request more money after retaining security deposit for repainting walls?
- A: When did the landlord request more money, after you left the premises, or before?
- Q. My question is can a tenant in GA unilaterally withhold rent in liu of delay in AC repair?
- A: In Georgia, a tenant takes a significant risk by withholding rent. Also, he hurt his case by refusing to buy an a/c and deduct it from the rent. When you file a dispossessory, he can file a countersuit. At the hearing, the judge may decrease the rent for the month he did not not have a/c. The safest thing he could have done was to pay the rent and then sue for the decreased value of the lease. Nevertheless, the court has the descretion to reduce the rent, give you the judgment for the remainder, and require the tenant to leave the property (evict).
