How does an emergency pick up order work?and can the mother move away with our children if I have sole custody?

Q: My children’s mom said she was taking my children to a party and never bought them back to me and enrolled them in schools in powder springs ga.I have temporary sole custody.

A: I’m not familiar with the term “emergency pickup order,” but if you have a court order of sole custody & the mother won’t return the children, then you should file an order to show cause, violation petition & file an application for a writ of habeas corpus. The writ is an emergency order which you can give the the Sheriff’s office down there to assist in having the children returned to your custody.
