  • as long as you filed a police report your chances of getting sole custody (at least temporarily) are pretty darn good.

  • First off, are you okay? Second, if he took your baby without clothes and without a carseat, that shows he is an unfit parent, and courts don't like that. You are very likely to get full custody. If he assaulted you, then he is more then likely to go to jail. Good luck and I hope everything works out for you.

  • Have you filed for emergency custody? The first parent who files first gets the child until the court hearing. Start recording everything that he does. Have all the paperwork sent to his moms house. Tell the judge that you don't know where he is but thats his mailing address. I'm sorry that all that has happened to you. I've been in a similiar situation, and it was a long battle (he was a douche bag) but it was totaly worth it. I have custody of all my children. Good luck!

  • I am glad you got your child back safely. Are you pressing charges for the assault? Is that automatic in your state?
