1. Essentially what you need to do is to make an application to your local Circuit court to vary the existing custody arrangements so that you now have custody of your 12 year old daughter and not her mother. I would advise you to get yourself a solicitor and barrister for this purpose particularly if the mother is likely to oppose your application for custody.

2. Obviously, there is no need for a court application if the mother agrees to you taking custody of your daughter. However, you should get your solicitor to formally write to the mother and request custody. Additionally, if you are on good terms with the mother, you can speak to her and see if she is agreeable to you taking custody.

3. Be aware that whilst the mother usually gets custody of the children, if there are instances of abuse, a court is likely to vary any existing custody arrangements. Be aware that the Judge is also likely to ask the girl who she would prefer to be with, as your daughter is now of an age where her opinion will be taken into account.

4. Be aware that you may also be entitled to Legal Aid for a custody application. So, you should speak to your solicitor about getting a Legal Aid certificate for the application.
