    Default Grounds for Emergency Ex Parte Custody Orders

    My question involves a child custody case from the State ofE
    I currently share custody of my daughter with her mother, but her mother has residency. I am living in md and her mother lives in de. we wnt to court about 2 1/2 months ago, and i get visitation of my daughter every other weekend and back and forth every two weeks once she is out of school. When i went and picked my daughter up at our meeting spot today, her mother informed me that she has been kicked out of her residents. which was with my daughter's grandmother's. and, now they are living in a homeless shelter. I have a 3 bedrrom apartment, and my daighter has her own room. do i have grounds to file for and emergency ex parte order to gain residency of my daughter?

    You can try, but you may find that the court considers a homeless shelter as a valid "home".

    (There is an attorney here who posts from time to time who has confirmed that she has obtained/retained custody for several shelter clients).

    It is likely a temporary situation and she will likely have access to quite a lot of help getting back on her feet.

    ok, i spoke with my lawyer this morning, and he advised me to not take my daughter back to her mother on sunday. he told me to go to the court house and file for an emergency ex parte. i am a little comprehensive about doing this, due to the fact that i don't want some kind of kidnapping charges filed against me. very cunfused, and not sure what to do at this point.

    Why isn't he filing the motion on your behalf?
