I have recently found out that I am pregnant and am financially unable to support the child and have found a wonderful family interested in an Independent adoption. Unfortunately finances will play a large roll in this decision I need to find out what the adoptive family will be paying and what I will still need to pay in the state of Georgia. Is there a place I can go to find out the exact law?
In August 2010 my wife of 14 years took two of our children from our home in Georgia and left the state with them, leaving behind a third child with myself during a time when I was struggling to survive and recover from a carjacking that left me with 6 gunshots to the abdobmen and with more surgury and hospitalization coming up. She unenrolled one of the two children from school and left. Much of this was done with no notice or warning, no court papers or anything were filed. Suddenly, one of my children and I were left without even her small income that was enough to cover utilities, and she had taken the EBT card that fed us all. We were left devistated, and missing loved ones, in a time when we needed to pull together, not be totally unstabled. We were hold on OK, through out everything up until that point. She and the two children are in Delaware, and she refuses to come back home, or bring them back. I have managed to keep our home intact otherwise. What can I do ? I really need some good help and advise. T. Clay
