Hello -

Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.

If your daugher left the state with the child and the child's father petitioned the court in some way (for some type of emergency or temporary custody order), the Court has the power to restrict the Mother's movement away from the state so that she will be there for the pending legal action.

No, she is going to have to answer in the state that the petition is currently filed in.
