So my friend and her ex don't have a court-order for custody yet. They agreed 2 weeks each for their 3 1/2 year old. Well now her ex tells her she can't have him back unless she cancels the child support appointment. So with that she has called Dallas PD and they keep telling her without a court order it's just a domestic issue they need to work out. So he leaves the baby with his mom all the time and told her she couldn't get him. Her question is that if she goes to his grandma's and he isn't there can she legally take the baby? We looked up all the parental kidnapping laws and all it says is that there has to be a custody order in place.
Sorry if it's long and confusing but we need advice from someone who may know.
