A: More information is needed before an accurate answer can be provided. Have you legitimated? Is there a visitation agreement/schedule? It is best to contact an attorney who can assist you with the specifics of your case.

I wish you well.

A: If you haven't legitimate, she can take your child and leave. You need to hire an attorney immediately to get custodial rights.

A: Yes, she can. You need to act immediately as time is of the essence. You need to file a petition for legitimation and custody. Otherwise, you have no rights to the child and she can leave the country with her.
