To bad were not in Virginia. Georgia does not help with anything, seems as though they make harder for a parent to save their childs life from being ruined. Thank you for your help!

Actually, Georgia follows the same law (sort of). You cannot serve an initial pleading by certified mail without knowing the defendant's actual address; but you CAN serve the mother by publication. Especially since the children are in your custody.

And being the mother is consenting will she have to come to court? I could careless if she comes or not but she doesnt want to go to court for some reason. And even though the papers will be notarized in virginia for her signature can we still file them in georgia being she is waiving venue and jurisdiction

As long as you are filing a document containing her original signature, and the original signature and seal of the notary, you can fax the Acknowledgment and Waiver, and a copy of the complaint, to her. Her written consent would also need to be notarized, and the originals filed with the Court.
