I understand now that the mother of my child did not have to notify me or have me served to file/obtain emergency custody. What I have learned is that she filed under the premise that our child was abused under my care. I have never abused my child. But she still filed for emergency custody and got it granted. What are my options? How can i dispute false claims that were made to obtain emergency custody of a child?
You should file for modification of custody based on her lies. Expect the Court to require proof. Talk with an attorney and get the legal help you need.
This is NOT legal advice, is GENERAL INFORMATION ONLY, and does NOT establish an Attorney/Client Relationship with you. You have not provided me with all the facts in a consultation, therefore my answer cannot address your specific legal situation and you should not rely upon my answer in your legal matter. I am an attorney licensed in Maryland and California.
File an opposition to her initial filing and file a motion for an expedited pendente lite hearing ASAP
