we are now having issue with each other and i am away from my ex boy friend or separate from him in 10 days. in few days ago he is wanting to see his daughter and i was ok but in one condition.
1- my daughter still breath feeds at night , with out me she cried her head off. we had agreed to has her back to me by at night. when i went to pickup her he says that he wants to keep her with him overnight at his place and he would not let me daughter back to me as we committed or be has broke our commitment
please advice: what should i do or how to get my kids back to me safely without any confrontation with law enforcement involvement.
Probably not but there are other options. For example, a court may order exactly what you offered- visitation but not overnight. This seems reasonable given you still breast feed. Here's a blog about custody which may help. https://www.divorce-matters.com/different-types-child-custody/ It's difficult for courts to say the father should never see the child again but restrictions yes.
Answering this quetion does not establish an attorney client relation. The answer is for educational purposes only. You should consult an attorney for your circumstances.
I am not sure what you mean by "full custody," as that is not a legal term in Colorado, and everyone who uses t seems to mean something different. Unless you already have court orders regarding parenting time, the police will not help you. You and he have exactly the same parental rights until a court order says otherwise. You need to file a Petition for Allocation of Parental Responsibilities ASAP and get him served. You might try to also file an emergency motion for parenting time at the same time; although, the court may not consider the situation to be an emergency.
This answer is provided as general information about a legal issue, is not legal advice specific to a particular case, and does not create a lawyer-client relationship with the person asking the question.
The reality at this point is that the child's father has every bit as many rights to the child as you do.
A verbal agreement outside of court is not likely to be enforced.
There is no such thing as full custody. Unless his rights are somehow terminated you will likely have some form of shared custody of the child.
The process you are look at is called Allocation of Parental Responsibilities. It is essentially the child part of a divorce. As part of the process you and the child's father will be asked to try to work out an agreement regarding parenting time, decision making authority, child support, etc. If you are unable to come to an agreement to Court will decide what is in the best interest of the child followin a hearing you both may participate in.
