The plaintiff elected not to prosecute this action and has moved for dismissal? Means what!?
We have primary custody.
Ex wife kept getting continuances and was appointed an atty.
Today we get a paper stating dismissal show cause.
No future hearing date.
And it states plaintiff elected not to prosecute. My husband is the plaintiff.
What is actually happening!?!? How could she get a dismissal.
It's no prejudice so I know we can refile but its already been almost a year! This is insanity.

“We” did not file anything. Sounds like your husband filed. Without seeing the paperwork a lawyer can only guess. “Elected not to prosecute” would ordinarily mean that your husband chose not to go forward with the Motion to Show Cause. Why he would make that decision is not discernible from your post. When someone owes child support under a court order, a motion to show cause is how you enforce that obligation.
