Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. The court order is going to control, so if there is no language stated within, that reflects what she desires to do or have done and you will not agree to it, then it would be at your discretion to keep your daughter. Now, if her probation officer will not allow her to leave the county to get the child, she would need to file a motion with the court or either 1) modify the agreement whereby the Judge allows a family member to pick her up on behalf of the mother ( which the court is likely to allow) or 2) she modifies a term/condition of her probation, allowing her to leave the county on for this. That would be at the discretion of the Judge, of course. Now, if you feel that releasing the child to a family member of hers is not in the best interest of the child
, you would have a stronger argument to make and in support of your actions, if the mother would try and hold you in contempt. Contempt of court comes from a parties failure to comply with a court order. While what happened was after the order was put in place and unforeseen, it still controls unless modified.
