Jacksonville, FL asked in Child Custody, Divorce and Family Law for Florida

Q: How can I get my child back from my child father?

I let my daughter go with her father for the weekend he was suppose to bring her back instead he decided to withdraw her from daycare, block my number and any attempt for me to contact my child. I filed for divorce soon after this happened but hes still not allowing me to see her its been 4 weeks now, he doesn't follow the Standing Law Order and I have filed a motion for contempt along with a Motion for Temporary Custody. What can I do? I dont know my child whereabouts. I also found out he falsified a letter from the daycare saying he paid 90% our child daycare which isn't true even the daycare owner said she didn't write it but she doesn't want to be involved in this situation. I don't know what to do.

A: You first need to consult with an attorney who will be able to review the documents already filed and assist you in getting an expedited hearing and/or a temporary time sharing plan in place. This, especially since you are married and now going through the divorce process. Proceedings involving married versus unmarried parties are treated differently.
