The court would award you legal custody and then the judge may issue a pick up order for contempt if he doesn't return the child.I hope you get the sole custody and the rights tot he child.The court should resolve this I know it has been really frustrating for you and the wait involved.Giving you legal custody is in the best interest of the child here.The court can also address return of the child.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
