LEGAL FATHER: Carl Gotts
Case No. 073-17HJ-13
NOTICE OF SUMMONS
TO: Carl Gotts
You are hereby notified that the above-styled action, which seeks the termination of parental rights was filed against you in the Juvenile Court of Hart County on or about the 10th day of February, 2017. The mother of the child is Morgan Porterfield.
The petition alleges that the above-named child is a dependent child based upon neglect and abandonment and that it would be in the child's best interest that the parents' parental rights be terminated. The child is currently in the temporary custody of the Hart County Department of Family and Children Services.
By reason of an order of publication filed on or about the 22nd day of March, 2017.
YOU ARE HEREBY COMMANDED AND REQUIRED to appear before the Juvenile Court of Hart County, Georgia on the 16th day of June, 2017 at 9:30 o'clock a.m. at the Hart County Courthouse, 185 W. Franklin Street, Hartwell, Georgia 30643.
NOTICE OF EFFECT OF
TERMINATION JUDGMENT
Georgia law provides that you can permanently lose your rights as a parent. A petition to terminate parental rights has been filed requesting the court to terminate your parental rights to your child. A copy of the petition may be obtained from the Clerk of Hart County Juvenile Court, located at 185 W. Franklin Street, Hartwell, GA 30643, during business hours, exclusive of holidays. A free copy shall be available to the parents. Upon request, the copy will be mailed to the requester.
A court hearing for your case has been scheduled for the 16th day of June, 2017 at 9:30 o'clock a.m. at the Hart County Courthouse, 185 W. Franklin Street, Hartwell, Georgia.
If you fail to appear, the court can terminate your parental rights in your absence.
If the court at the trial finds that the facts set out in the petition to terminate parental rights are true and that termination of your rights will serve the best interests of your child, the court can enter a judgment ending your rights to your child.
If the judgment terminates your parental rights, you will no longer have any rights to your child. This means that you will not have the right to visit, contact, or have custody of your child or make any decisions affecting your child or your child?s earnings or property. Your child will be legally freed to be adopted by someone else.
Even if your parental rights are terminated:
(1) You will still be responsible for providing financial support (child support payments) for your child?s care unless and until your child is adopted; and
(2) Your child can still inherit from you unless and until your child is adopted.
This is a very serious matter. You should contact an attorney immediately so that you can be prepared for the court hearing. You have the right to hire an attorney and to have him or her represent you. If you cannot afford to hire an attorney, the court will appoint an attorney if the court finds that you are an indigent person. Whether or not you decide to hire an attorney, you have the right to attend the hearing of your case, to call witnesses on your behalf, and to question those witnesses brought against you.
If you have any questions concerning this notice, you may call the telephone number of the clerk's office which is: 706-376-7189.
If you want a lawyer appointed to represent you, you must contact the Court or the officer of this Court responsible for determining whether or not you are indigent. Said office is located at The Office of the Public Defender of the Northern Judicial Circuit, 461 Cook Street, Suite J, Royston, Georgia 30662, and the telephone number is 706-246-9320.
SO ORDERED, this the 29th day of March, 2017.
