Hello, it sounds like she went to North Carolina and obtained a "very" temporary order. It isn't permanent. The truth is that you need to file a case here in Dallas County if you were living here for more than 6 months. Afterwards, contact the North Carolina court and let them know there is a jurisdiction issue. The two courts, Dallas and North Carolina, will probably have a hearing to decide where the case should be held. However, the law is pretty clear on this issue, if you have been living in Dallas for 6 months or more, the case should be heard here in Dallas. As for having no money, I offer payment plans and only need a down payment to start a case like this. Call me at 214-566-7969.
