After I gave birth to my daughter, I let my (ex) sister in-law take care my baby temporary while trying to get recovery due to some heath issues. When I'm out the hospital I went to get my baby to visiting me every weekend because I still trying to recovery but now even to take her home on the weekend my sister in-law she refused and always avoid the baby from me. (The baby is 1 yr old now) and I can't even take her for the weekend, she want to keep my baby. She already had my other three kids, I signed up to her after my husband passed away when I first came to United States and know nothing about the laws and understand English very little and I don't have any family or know anyone. I don't want to loose another of my child to her and I know I didn't signed anything with this baby to anyone.
You will need to get with an experienced attorney to review all of the facts before an opinion as to the best option can be made. You might be able to make a demand for the child, with counsel's help; you might be able to have police assist you; or, you might have to file with the court for custody. Get with an experienced family law attorney.
This answer is not legal advice, and does not create an attorney - client relationship. This answer is for educational purposes only.
As the parent of the child, without any other order in place, you have a right to custody beyond anyone else. I would recommend that you call the police and have them assist you in getting your child back.
I would also expect that your sister-in-law would file for some kind of restraining order or protective order if she feels strongly that you shouldn't have the child. If that happens, I would recommend you consult with an attorney immediately.
