I fled our home for safety reasons with our daughter to another county. I filed for legal separation in my new county and have a VPO against him b/c there was an act of domestic violence that occurred in the new county. He went and filed for divorce in the old county to try to trump my separation proceeding in the new county and have it moved back to the old one. My question is: If the new county does grant his motion to dismiss and transfer back to the old county, can he then cancel his divorce filing and we're all left back at square one with no proceeding at all? (He hinted to his friend about this strategy.)
