The only way to make someone a legal guardian of your child is by a guardianship proceeding in probate court. Simply handing your child over to someone else does not make them a legal guardian, nor does it give them ANY legal rights to your child. So, you need first be very clear about what you did at the time you let your daughter go live in Nevada. Second, when the police showed up, what did they tell you!? Why did they say that the ex husband had any rights to your daughter over you? No one except you should have any rights to this child, unless you granted them a guardianship IN COURT, OR unless you lost custody of your daughter through a CPS proceeding. Since you are not clear what happened, or on what grounds ex husband is claiming custody rights to your daughter, we cannot really help you. You need to speak to a lawyer directly.
