My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Utah
My husband took our 2 year oldson for his 1 week visitation. I asked for it an itinerary, and he refused. He said he didnt have to give me an explaination of where he was going for a week. I backed down and let him take our son. He agreed to drop off son at daycare on a thursday at 5:30pm so I could pick son up.
During the week, I texted message husband to see if son was doing ok. Son had never been away from me that long before, and I was concered 1 week was too long. I had no verbal, written, or visual contact with son. Father and son disapeared.
I went to the daycare at 5:30PM as agreed upon, and the daycare said they had not seen or heard from Father or son for over 1 week.
I panicked. I called my attorney. He said to wait 4 more days until Monday and call the cops if son was not returned.
I called husbands work to see if he was there, and did not get an answer. I called his boss, and did not get an answer. I left a voice mail to have boss call me and let me know if he had seen father or where he might be.
After 11 days, father returned son to daycare. Daycare called me to let me know he dropped off our son.
The next day, I was served with a stalking order. Husband said I stalked him by sending him text messages when he was on his 1 week vacation.
At the child custody hearing, husband said he would drop stalking order if I signed away parental rights. I said no, so we are goingto court for the stalking order.
1. Can he use this stalking order as blackmail against me?
2. I filed an OSC against him for taking son for 11 days
3. Till this day, I have do not know what happened to my son for 11 days, or where he was.
4. I have primary custody of our son.
5. Is it legal to use the court system as a weapon against me and to use our son to try to change parental custody.
