I am a young mother of a 4 year old daughter. She was born in Hawaii where I also lived with her Father. We moved to California where I'm from and live now, about 1 1/2 years ago. A few months after our move we decided to go our separate ways. We had an agreement notorised saying we would split time with her 6 months at a time beginning with me. He took off with her back to Hawaii while I was at work shortly after this and said he would keep her the first six months. He said he would let me have her after 6 months like we had agreed. The time came and I flew out to get her. He changed his mind and refused to let me have her. Granted he also rarely let me speak to her either...Well he kept her. I came home without her. This was March of 2011 when I went out there. It's been a year since I've seen my daughter. I don't have the money for an attorney, and I've been told that I have to have one to file for anything by Hawaii standards. My question is this...if I fly out there and take my daughter out of her pre-school class, then fly home with her, can I be in trouble legally? There is NO custody order of any kind. Please help me out here.
