Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Anybody have legal troubles like these? Or advice?

My friend has a 1 year old daughter. He's on the child birth certificate. But her crap of a mom, his ex, moved to the next state south of us. And as far into it as possible. So he rarely sees her because she won't hardly let him come see her or bring her here. She promised he'd see her on her 1st birthday but she decided going to Florida out of he blue was more important than seeing her dad. Anytime he says anything about the stuff his ex does I wish I could slap her. Lol. Should he get a lawyer or just go straight to the courts?

 He should have already gotten a lawyer and got visitation rights to begin with or she's just going to continue to do this kinds of stuff.

Did they have a legal custody agreement in place before she moved?

lawyer up or eventually it'll play against him and he'll never see the kid again

She had told him no problem with seeing her and then when she was like a week old she up and left.

This should have been all worked out through the courts just after the baby was born. He'll have to either get a lawyer or go to the friend of the court office and see what can be done.

Get a lawyer ASAP! I don't know what state you are in, but the dad has rights to his daughter!

File for visitation if there's not an order already in place.

Get a lawyer and draw up an agreement. If they can't agree, then it'll go to court. Keep documentation of the things she does to keep him away from his daughter. It'll help you out.
