Legal Answers
26 Questions Answered

Q. What can we do if the non custodial parent, the mother, hasn't contacted the children for 12 weeks?
A: It is possible for a step parent to adopt children. However, there are certain legal hurdles that have to be met before this can occur. You will need an attorney to assist you to ensure that it is done correctly. I would advise that you reach out to an attorney for a consultation so that you can make an informed decision on how to proceed.
Q. Is there a difference between an at home DNA test and a DNA test from child support?
A: It will be difficult for an attorney to advise you as to the accuracy of the home DNA test. Georgia requires laboratories to meet certain scientific criteria which provides assurances that the results are accurate. It may be difficult to prove the accuracy of a home DNA test in court without knowing the qualifications of the laboratory. However, the DNA testing conducted through Child Support Enforcement is credible and generally admissible in court. Additionally, the DNA testing through Child Support Enforcement is less expensive than a test conducted a private laboratory. Only you can make the decision if you submit to a second test or move on. Good luck.
Q. Is any cash you give to someone considered "a gift" in Georgia? Even if you have a verbal contract and text agreements?
A: A verbal agreement can be enforceable. However, without additional information, I do not know if the verbal agreement that you had with your ex is enforceable. I would suggest that you consult with an attorney. It is relatively inexpensive to file a case in small claims court and it is designed for people to represent themselves. Also, cases usually appear before a judge quickly. You may want to file a case and proceed through that avenue. Good luck!
Q. Do I have to pay child support to the CP if my kids are in my custody during the summer break?
A: Yes. Typically child support is based on a yearly basis and most court orders do not allow you to stop payment during certain months. However, you can ask the court for a reduction for the time that your children spend with you during the summer so that your overall child support (and monthly amount) will be reduced. I would advise working with an attorney to ensure that the request for the reduction is completed properly.
Q. My now wife had given conservatorship for her daughter to her then boyfriend , Can we get change it. No contact
A: It depends on the type of guardianship that was granted. If it was temporary guardianship through the probate court, consent can be revoked. I would suggest that you speak with an attorney to determine exactly type of guardianship/conservatorship that was granted and the grounds upon which it can be revoked or modified. Good luck.
Q. can i get a divorce without child support and visitation
A: If the child is yours, there are very few instances where child support will not be awarded. However, you can agree not to exercise visitation. Please talk to a lawyer to get more a more specific answer for your situation.
Q. Am I allowed to refuse visitation to the non-custodial parent due to alcohol, drug and extreme sexiual behvior abuse.
A: I would suggest that you file the necessary documents to modify visitation immediately. Depending on the judge/county, you may be able to get an emergency hearing to temporarily modify visitation if you believe that your child will be in danger when the child is in his father's care.
Q. Can I purchase a house if I’m married and then file for divorce and spouse have no stake in my home.
A: Yes you can, however the house will likely be considered marital property and your soon to be ex may be have a financial interest in it. If you can wait, I would suggest purchasing the home after your divorce is finalized.
Q. I said i didnt need child support but am now struggling. Can I go back and request child support?
A: Typically, you cannot modify a child support award unless it has been 2 years has passed since the last order. However, child support can be modified if there is a material change in the financial circumstances of the parents or the child. You may want to talk with a lawyer to determine if your circumstances would qualify as material and support a change in the previous child support order.
