No custody order and father won't return child from out of state
Asked Jun 26, 2012, 05:42 PM
The father and I agreed about him taking our child from Oregon to South Dakota. It was a temporary plan. Until He finished one semester of a trade program that he didn't finish before. He has family there and my daughter is taken care of very well. Before he got a job there I was the bread winner for our child. I initiated official child support payments just recently. Our only legally binding document states that all of our decisions concerning her must be made jointly? Is the next step filing for a custody order? I have a history of minor mental illness: anxiety, insomnia, possibly bipolar. Should I worry about this? I have a good work history with a career as a chef and he has just started his first full time job in over ten years. Can I just go there and pick her up and bring her home? What should I do, so that I can fully participate in raising my daughter? Thanks in advance.
