Can I file a motion to dismiss a custody case for improper jurisdiction?

Where was the affidavit of paternity and initial casuistry order filed, that most likely the proper venue as that Court has already gained and exercised jurisdiction over this relationship.
Engage an attorney and do it NOW, time is running and if you snooze you lose.
To the PROSPECTIVE client, please review my efforts to assist by quickly and frankly responding to your question with AVVO. Also, please realize this PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon the information you have conveyed. As the response is based on very limited information it MUST NOT be relied upon as the basis for action or inaction. If you are seeking legal advice which you can and should rely upon you will have to engage an attorney, provide all of the facts in detail and answer their questions. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. That may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will require payment for our services. Providing counsel and representation is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
