A: The ATI takes effect as soon as the Petition is filed. Both parents have equal rights to children of the marriage unless/until there is a court order stating otherwise.

Child custody is not a do it yourself project. You need to hire an attorney.

Here is a link to an article discussing the Automatic Temporary Injunction.

Best of luck.
