You need to file an action for custody and have a temporary hearing to set custody while the action is pending, and I recommend doing it sooner rather than later before mom takes off with your daughter or refuses to return her from visitation. Depending on circumstances and on what she has said in her threats, you may be able to request an expedited or emergency hearing. You should consult with a local family law attorney to discuss your options.
