What can I do? I am a single mother, the father of my daughter and I were never married, we were together for almost four years, my daughter is almost four years old. For almost three years of the relationship, I did not want to be with him, I stayed because I thought it was the right thing to do for my daughter.Things got really bad and I could not stay anymore. I was in New York where he is from, my daughter was born there. I Could not afford to live on my own. My only option was to move home with my mother until I got on my feet. So, me and my daughter did that. I brought her back to New York to visit her father, I left her there in good faith that he would return her to me. We never wanted to do anything through the court system. Now, he does not want to give her back. I am in Mississippi and they are in New York. What rights do I have? What do I have to do to get my daughter back? Please give me some advice.


If the father is the proved father either by him signing the aknowlegement in the hospital, or you being married then you have to go to court to legally get your daughter back. IF NOT go get your daughter, he has not rights over her until he files for them. You still might not be allowed to leave the state with the child. It depends on the laws there.
Best bet is to get a lawer and go through court.

Dont tell him just go on with your life, when the child is old enough and asks about his daddy, then call and tell him. but be ready becasue once the father is involved, he could say you kept this child from him and the courts probably would give him custody of your child. With out him even knowing his father he would be forced to go live with him.


I still have not informed my sons father about my son. Sometimes I want to and sometimes I dont its a constant mind war. My Fiance has been raising my son with me so he isnt fatherless. When my son is older I will tell him who is biological father is. If he wants to presue a relatopmship with his bio father I will help him find him. So I will leave it up to my son when he is old enough to understand. Unless the father comes and finds us first I guess.
(I have had no contact with my sons father in almost 2 yrs. I tried to contact him when I was 4mo (when I found out I was pregnant) & 7mo pregnant and couldnt find him, then again when my son was a month old. Afterwards I just gave up, I am not spending my precious time trying to find a deadbeat for my son. When my fiance has been there since day one and has been raising him as his own.)
