In Georgia, a tenant rented for 6 years. The last three

In Georgia, a tenant rented for 6 years. The last three years have been under an extension provision called "month-to-month" at a premium additional cost. The tenant chose to pay the premium so that tenant can exit the lease quickly when a home property opportunity becomes available. The tenant intentions were communicated to the leasing office representatives. A home property opportunity became available days before month end requiring tenant to vacate before month end with notice. Vacated tenant paid next month rent but landlord now requests an additional month rent because of the 60 day notice requirement. Resident could not reasonably provide a 60 day notice on the month-to-month rental extension without losing property purchase opportunity in a competitive housing market. The term “month-to-month” is misleading to residents when “conditional” based upon the 60 day notice requirement. Does this condition pose an unreasonable and unfair disadvantage to tenants as future home buyers in a competitive market and is there legal basis for objection?JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: The lease also stipulates that even if the property is rented before the end of the notice period, tenant is not entitled to any benefit. Yet there is a provision for early lease termination in the Georgia statutes that allows for tenant to be obligated only for the rental period (30 days in this case) or period until rented, whichever is lesser. A tenant may not interpret the contract as an attorney would. The contract has the “Georgia Apartment Association” logo on it.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The potential contradiction is the use of the word “month-to-month” but the lease extension provision states the lease will be extended on a 60 Day Term basis until 60 day notice is given. The successive 60 day terms will be essentially indefinite until 60 day notice is given. Because of the 60 day notice condition, the “month-to-month” agreement is really a 60 day obligation on a contract that is paid monthly by the tenant. Contract logo – GAA (Georgia Apartment Association) - “Apartment Rental Contract”.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: The rental impact for an additional month rent is about $1200. Not sure if this is worth the consultation but I would rather pay the attorney than the landlord only if there is reasonable cause for demand.JA: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.Customer: OK.

I filed for divorced based on the fact that my husband left

I filed for divorced based on the fact that my husband left the country because he was offered a job overseas, he never consulted me about that decision and now he's been gone for 7 years. I filed for absolute divorce and sent all the paper for him to sign which he did but now the court is asking for an affidavit verifying his signature. I'm confused about this affidavit thing, it is my understanding that an affidavit needs to be signed in-front of a notary. How should I proceed and how can I verify his signature when he is not in the USA and unwilling cooperate with the process.
