Congrats on being married for 45 yrs. That's awesome! I hope to married to a good man some day and with God's help I'm sure that is going to happen. I may have a couple more questions but for tonite I am signing off and thank you again for your help! You have helped me to make the decision to move to GA and get away without fear of going to jail for taking my kids out of an abusive relationship. He makes a lot of threats that he will get me for kidnapping and at least now I know that wont happen. Thank you Dave, have a great rest of the evening.
Good evening Dave, I wanted to ask if I have to file the protective order in the state he lives in or if I can file it in GA where I'm moving to? With him being a confident informant I thought I should file in Ga but want to make sure I cover all my bases and do this right. Thank you!
If you don't want him to know you are leaving it may be best to wait until you arrive at your new home and then if or when he contacts you file your motion there.
If I take off to GA with my children without a temporary custody order can he file a temporary custody order and make me return them? I plan on enrolling them in school as soon as I get there and dont want to have to return them to him. I would like to file the temp custody order in GA but am told that I cant until I have been there for 6 months. Do you know if I can file a temporary emergency order in GA so that he will have to come to GA for court?
