I went to apply for visitation bc my daughters mother won't let me see my child for over 6 months. She won't pick up my calls or texts but will answer my girlfriend. Told her I had to take her to court to see my daughter. Filled out the paperwork but when I looked up what was happening it says pending. And that the summons was return unserved. What is my next step or what happens now. Should I be looking for a lawyer?
Hire a private investigator to track her down. Once you have an address for her or place of employment, send the process server again to serve her. You have 120 days from the date you filed the petition to serve her. If you believe she is concealing herself, it is best you hire an attorney to proceed forward. Best of luck!
