Asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Georgia

Q: can I get my children back if my case was dismissed but refiled the same case immediately after dismissal?

My mother and ex husband had my children taken from my home on an emergency shelter order and the case was dismissed. They immediately refiled the case before I could get my children back. Does that mean they stay with them because they refiled the case or can I get my children because it was dismissed?? We haven’t been to court on the refiled case and I’m ready to get my children from these crazy people! Please help
