There is a presumption that biological parents have a superior right to their children over anyone else. You would have to file for custody and show the court why it is in the best interest of the child that the court ignore that presumption in favor of you.
I suppose you could do this, but it's unlikely that having someone else act for you would end any "threats and harassments" by the other side. In addition, there will likely be times when your personal presence is required - such as for testimony. Your absence even at other times is...Read more »
