Hi, I'm Heather, an attorney for 15 years, and I'd like to assist you for informational purposes.

Your question doesn't really state why your newborn is being cared for by her aunt. Is your newborn with her aunt simply because you have a criminal record. Your question doesn't state what crimes are on your record. Have you thought of trying to have your criminal record expunged? There is a chance that you might qualify for an expungement. Also, depending on the circumstances surrounding why the aunt has the child, you might be able to sue her for custody, but it sounds like, based on the limited circumstances you described, that there might already be a case - - that part is unclear from your question as well.
