Summary

The newest associate at Strauss and Frost, Tyler Carey grew up in Athens, Ohio and moved to Augusta, Georgia for college where he attended and graduated from Augusta University. During his undergraduate studies, Tyler was a member of the Student Conduct Board, as well as awarded the Who’s Who Among American College Students from Universities. After Augusta University, Tyler moved to Loganville to attend Emory University’s School of Law.

During Tyler's first year of law school, he interned for Strauss & Frost which sparked his desire to help those overwhelmed by the legal system.

During his time at Emory, Tyler helped write am amicus curie brief to the United States Supreme Court in V.L. v. E.L on the importance of finality and stability in adoptions. The Supreme Court overturned the Alabama Supreme Court who had said a Georgia court erroneously applied Georgia adoption law to a homosexual couple. The Supreme Court thus said each state must give full faith and credit to all adoptions, regardless of sexual orientation.

During law school, Tyler had hands on experience with catastrophic losses from tractor-trailer wrecks, medical malpractice, premises liability, and negligent hiring. Tyler has a wide range of experience in criminal defense cases; from disorderly conduct to armed robbery, Tyler has helped his clients receive their fair trial, and has held the criminal justice system accountable to their burden. Tyler has also helped many clients in their domestic cases. From divorce, child custody, child support, and contempt.

When not practicing law, you can find Tyler on the golf course, at the movies, or spending time with his wife, two children, and chocolate lab - Clara.

Legal Answers
13 Questions Answered

Q. My son's father has always been absent but now pays child support. Does he have rights?
A: It sounds like you and the child’s father were never married. He would have standing to file a legitimation action to establish visitation and custody. Depending on how old the child is and how long he has not made any contact you may have a strong argument for custody and supervised visits, or abandonment.
Q. My daughter's mother and I had a verbal agreement regarding financial support and visitation. Never court ordered.
A: Until you have an order legitimating you as the father of the child, you have no rights to your daughter (visitation, child support, etc.). With you filing for legitimation, that is the first step in getting an established visitation schedule. The current verbal agreement is less important than what the actual practice has been (e.g. orally you guys agreed to every other weekend, but in practice in is really more every weekend). The visitation that has actually gone on will set a precedent for what both parties are comfortable with, at a minimum. If you are filing your legitimation pro se, I caution you to proceed any further without representation. If you do have an attorney, these types of questions can be directed to him or her.
Q. Can a mother of a child give 30 day relocate, moving the child because wanting to be with her boyfriend?
A: Generally, yes. Each settlement agreement or final divorce decree is different but most spell out one spouse must give their former spouse 30 days notice. Most of the agreements are silent as to the non-relocating spouse having to AGREE to the relocation. Moving in with a new boyfriend may be grounds for a modification of custody, BUT, it is critical you consult a local attorney to fully evaluate all the facts and circumstances of the case. Best of luck!
Q. i want to leave my husband. I have no car job my family is in fl I am trapped in ga I have a 4m old baby. Can I go to
A: Do some research and reach out to a Legal Aid clinic. They may very well be able to help you. Also, depending on where you live there may be certain programs or facilities that can help individuals in similar situations.
Q. My child's father said he's filed for visitation rights, we never married, how long will the court process take
A: I’m assuminf your child’s father filed a legitimation. That action will address custody, visitation, child support, and the child’s last name. I would recommend consulting with an attorney to protect your rights, and to make sure you know what you’re agreeing to!
Q. How do I get an appeal application? Or a petition of whatsoever?
A: Generally you have 30 days from the date of conviction to file a notice of appeal. O.C.G.A. 40-6-350 deals with laws for people operating mopeds - hence you are likely in a city or state court. Depending on which you are will depend on if you have an appealable issue from a record court. Consult with a local appellate attorney in a timely manner! If not, you could have waived your rights.
Q. 3 month old, the father and I not married split before she was born wanting DNA and custody anger/drug/alcohol issues
A: Depending on the type of conduct he was doing, and the proof to back it up, he’ll likely get some form of visitation. The better the proof, the more likely he will have to have supervised visits! Consult with an attorney ASAP!
Q. Can a man not proven the father of a child file for rights?
A: Yes, he can. Your ex will likely file a legitimation action, and ask for a DNA test. Not being on the birth certificate is not proof or disproof of paternity. I would consult with local counsel to protect your rights!
Q. I am afraid my marriage is about to end, I feel my husband may be cheating,I am 7 months pregnant,I don't work.
A: You can look around for legal aid services or some firms offer reduced pricing. Best thing to do is start doing some research and call around. As far as your case goes, get proof of his misconduct (texts, photos, emails, etc)!
