Hi. I will be glad to help you with this question, but I need some more information. Is there a custody order? In what state was the order entered? What does the order say about her care of the child?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
No order. I just moved them there this January and they have already missed 3 days of school. My oldest is on medication and has not been given it properly. My two step kids agree I should be raising my kids and not there mother. Can I file an order tomorrow morning?
Expert:  Rose Zapor replied 5 years ago.
Yes. If the children lived in Arizona for the last six months and not anywhere else for six mnonths, then Arizona has the jurisdiction. Get into court and get an order for return of the children. Be sure you can document everything you are saying!.

Good Luck,

Rose

Thank you. What is an order for return? Can I drive there tomorrow and get them?
Expert:  Rose Zapor replied 5 years ago.
If there is no order for custody, then you can go and get them because you are also the parent. I would definitely file for a temporary restratining order first, which would give you custody and you can get it in one day. That way, if she were to call the police to say that you were kidnaping the children, you would have the order with you to show the police that she is lying.

An order for return is similar to an order for Habeas Corpus - an order that can be enfoced in the other state for the return of the children to their home state. With a TPO, you would not need the order for return.

Good Luck,

Rose
