Good Morning.

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

Do they have court order for the child?

Expert:  Leon replied 6 months ago.

Good Morning.

If you do not have a court order you need to file an application urgently in the court. If you do then you can go back to court and enforce it.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
