My sister ex-boyfriend won't let her have her child back. She let him spend time with him on the 4 of July and now he won't give him back. He's not on the birth certificate so he has no legal right to the child but the police won't help in this situation. The commissioner said it's kidnapping but they won't do anything about it. What options are there to get the child back?
Your sister should file for an emergency hearing requesting emergency custody with the circuit court of the county she resides in. There are a lot of procedural aspects to filing an emergency which may make it worth your sister's efforts to retain an attorney.
