Q. Need advice on how to go about filing my divorce
A: Filing for Legal Paternity When seeking to establish paternity of a child, there are several options on how this can be done. The option chosen will depend on who is filing to establish paternity, and whether or not there is any disagreement on the matter. • Voluntary Acknowledgment – If both the mother and the father seeking paternity agree who the father is, they can each sign a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity. This will suffice to establish paternity. In some cases, however, a parent will want to present additional evidence to help avoid potential challenges in the future.
 • Petition the Courts – Another option is for the mother, the father, or any other individual (including the child) or organization with an interest in the case, to start a paternity action. This action will be presented in either the Superior Court or the State Court to hear evidence and decide on the case.
 • Department of Human Resources – A third type of case is when the Department of Human Resources files a petition to establish paternity.

Q. I have a uncle who is bed reading and on hospice an I'm trying to help him get a divorce his wife hasn't been around .
A: The use of force, menace, duress, or fraud in obtaining the marriage is a ground for divorce. "Duress" is defined as any illegal imprisonment or legal imprisonment used for an illegal purpose, threats of bodily or other harm, or other means amounting to coercion or tending to coerce the will of another and actually inducing that person to do an act contrary to his free will. "Menace" is an overt act, short of an actual assault, which is of a threatening character.O.C.G.A. § 19-5-3(4). You will need an attorney for this matter.
