Good morning. Do you know why the Judge dismissed the case after the mother was awarded custody of the child? Was she required to do something and failed to do so? Also, what was ordered in 2014?
Did you request a phone call or was that an error?
I would be happy to but am not seeing a number to call. Can you make the phone request again, which may hopefully cure this site error?
Certainly and please remember to rate my help at the top, so I can get credit for my time. First, the party would want to speak with the clerk of court and see if they can share why the case was dismissed. Is it a result of the petitioner NOT proceeding with the divorce and it being dismissed for lack of prosecution? If so, that would explain it. If that was not the reason, then he would need to determine if she FAILED TO COMPLY, with an order of the court, which allowed the Judge to then dismiss the case, as a result of her failure to do something that was ordered. If the entire case has been dismissed, he may then want to explore filing where he lives, to gain jurisdiction over the matter
You are welcome. Best of luck and just remember to rate my help at the top. Thank you again
I can answer any follow up questions which you may have online and would be happy to do so. Please let me know. Also, I kindly ask that you rate my help, so I can get credit for our time together. The phone calls are supposed to last 15 minutes and that time was doubled. Thank you for understanding.
I am not able to at this time. Please post them here so I can respond. Thank you.
Based upon what you shared, then it would all be dismissed. You stated that the divorce and temporary orders all have the same case number, which means they are all tied to together and if the clerk confirmed that all the cases were dismissed and this is now closed, then everything would be dismissed and closed out.
It did not bring up the case history. It just took my to the clerks website
The information you shared and provided is enough. My answer still remains the same, that the case was dismissed. If no action has been taken by the petitioner/mother, over the past year, the case was likely dismiss for lack of prosecution. Please let me know if there is anything else, as I would be happy to respond. If not, please remember to rate my help at this time at the top of this page, prior to leaving, so I can receive the proper credit, for our time together. Thank you.
