A: If there is a court order in place regarding the child then an enforcement would be a proper route to take. A Writ of Habeas Corpus can be filed for the purpose of the mother being ordered to hand over the child at a specific place and time if the father has a legal right to have them (pursuant to a court order).

If there is no order in place then a suit affecting the parent child relationship would be appropriate to get court orders in place regarding the child. Without a court order there isn't much that can be done to make one parent hand over a child to the other.

Either way you should seek the counsel of a qualified family attorney.
