Eagle Pass, TX asked in Family Law, Child Custody and Child Support for Georgia

Q: How do I file do I file a decree to have a cased dismissed?

My ex husband has filed paperwork to try to take my child from me. Georgia has no jurisdiction over the matter as I live in Texas, the divorce happened in Colorado and I have never lived in Georgia. He has filed false accusations against me and I am trying to get this case dismissed in Douglas County. How might I go about doing that I dont know what paperwork to file and I am not just going to roll over as he was hoping I would.

A: You need to hire an attorney who can review the prior orders, gather evidence and file the Motion to Dismiss. It may require a hearing, so it's not as simple as just asking the court for a dismissal and it happens.
