1. Legal Aid in one state is usually not connected to legal aid in another. If you contact Legal Aid of Atlanta, they'll run a conflict check, but you should be dealing with a completely different organization. Legal aid typically doesn't handle tort
cases, though. Primarily, they deal with family law cases. In recent years, they are so overwhelmed that they mostly accept cases that involve domestic violence
or child abuse
. If you are interested in suing her for defamation
of character, you may want to look for a local Atlanta attorney who will take the case on a contingency basis - meaning that you only pay after you settle or win a judgment. You can request an attorney referral through the Georgia State Bar Association.
2. If you're suing someone for defamation of character, internet printouts are admissible. You may have to show that your ex-wife is the person who made the statements, but, yes, those are admissible.
3. See #1. An attorney who will take the case on a contingency basis may be the best option. If the original judge ordered her not to do any of these things, then there may also be an option of filing a copy of the original order with the family courts in Atlanta, and asking them to enfore it. Once the order is domesticated, you can ask the Atlanta judge to find her in contempt of court. It may be worth asking a local family law attorney what they would charge you to domesticate the order in Atlanta, because it may be less than the expense of you traveling to Georgia to do it. Another option is to look for a law school in Atlanta with a Family Law Clinic. They sometimes tend to take cases involving unusual issues, and domestication of a foreign court order could appeal to them.
I also just want to clarify - slander is not a crime. This is a civil action
. That means that (1) the standard of proof is actually lower than in a criminal case, which should benefit you and (2) if you win, you're looking at an award of damages, not jail.
