What papers do I need to file to the court

Asked about 1 year ago - Live Oak, FL

1.5 months ago I filed for full custody of my child. I have 50/50 custudy. My daughters mother was arrested again 4 days ago for violation of probation ( arrest was 10/ 8/ 13). I have tooken custody of my daugher and is now living with me. I went to the family clerk of the court to ask if there is anything I need to file to notafy the court of myself taking custody and the arrest of her mom. They said by law they could not tell me. is there any paperwork I need to file to keep me in good graces with the judge when it comes time for court? I would be greatful for any information.

    Answered . You may want to consider a Supplemental Petition for Modification. I am providing a link of the form for your review.
