If you have a current custody/visitation order in place, you can petition the court for an order to modify the current custody arrangement. Any information that you have evidencing that the best interest of the child is best served by residing with you will be helpful to support your petition. This would include any police reports, Children Services reports, texts, pictures, etc. Because your daughter resides in FL, you will need to file your petition there so you should consult a FL family law attorney familiar with that state's laws.
By posting on this site or answering/responding to questions does not create an attorney-client relationship and is intended to be an opinion only. My opinion is not intended to be a guarantee or promise of any outcome or result in your matter.
You can always request a modification of orders. If the child lives in Florida it has to be handled there.
