, you have a chance at an appeal with the interlocutory court, i.e. the COURT OF APPEALS.
When you file an appeal you are asking the Court of Appeals to examine what happened in your trial court and make sure that his rights were not violated, and the decision was not based on an error of law and/or fact.
You can see more about the appeals process here
(it focuses on appeals overall, not just appeals from juvenile
justice court), and the website for the appellate
court is here
Of course, this is much easier said than done. An attorney is recommended. If finances are an issue, I can recommend three resources. First, here is a list of all pro bono work in the state...http://www.abanet.org/legalservices/probono/directory/georgia.html
…and another list:http://www.lawhelp.org
Finally, you may call your local law school and see if they have a legal clinic place available. The legal clinic is a free service the school(s) provide to the community. While they are often overbooked, they have openings sometimes. Here is the list law schools in your state:http://www.hg.org/law-schools-georgia.asp
Hopefully, the appeal may reduce/void out the decision and have the matter reheard.
