Snellville, GA asked in Criminal Law, Employment Law, Family Law and Domestic Violence for Georgia

Q: If dad filed a Emrgcy TPO & 2day had 1st hearing he cont'd & I asked 4 a lawyer can he still motion 2 dismiss it?

He said he wanted to continue it and then asked the judge if he could order us all to go to counseling? I wouldn't have a problem with it at all but the TPO would still stay and I wouldn't get to go to work & coach my girls? I work 4 my dad for 31 yrs! I feel like this was done to get me out of their house and to get me to go to counseling which I have done all my life! If they wanted to go to counseling then why would they have to put a TPO on me to do that? This could mess anything positive for my future I have left? ... My parents are getting older and I don't think they realize the severity of what they could cause and how it could effect me? What do I do?
