My daughters father is moving out of state to alabama. We were never married. He wants my daughter to visit him for a month. Is there anything i can do to prevent him from taking her and not returning her to me since he is her father
Nothing. I am hoping there is something I can have him sign incase he does take my daughter the police will help me. Most cases I hear since the child is with the father, the police will not help
If you have a custody order from a egal perspective you are protected. If you do not have a custody order you need to file a Petiton for Custody/Visitation before your husband gets the child. Make sure the custody order is registered with the court where your husband moves to. Once registered you can ask the Alabama court to enforce the custody arrangement if there are problems. They will obtain the child for you if your husband decides not to comply. They will have the authority to imprison your husband for contempt for violating an order.
