My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Georgia- My fiance' is the non custodial parent. The custodial parent (Mother) sent his daughter to live with him because she has some medical issues going on with her as well as financial issues. The problem that he is experiencing is the constant "If you don't do this -I will be coming to get her" Also prior to her sending his daughter to him she talks down to him and is constantly telling him how horrible of a father he is, what he doesn't do, and threatening not to send her for visitation (She lives in another state). Now that she's sent her here-she has been requesting that he send her to her (the mother) every 6-8 weeks to get her hair done, of course my fiance does not agree to this, so this leads to her wanting him to send his daughter back to her -even though, she is now registered for school and school has been in session for three weeks now, she's in dance classes, etc... Today the cops knocked on the door early this morning ( We were gone-neighbor informed us) I'm assuming she has called the cops now because he refuses to send her back. We can not afford a lawyer right now and wanted to know what could we do to stop her from taking her from him over such a petty situation. This disrupts the child's life and his daughter has begged him not to send her back to her mom. What can he do? Can he file for custody on his own? What if the cops come back does he have to give his daughter to them?
