Mother of our child left our nice home in FL to a dump in NY. Following her arrival she filed restraining order alleging verbal and physical abuse. I believe her to be living with her mother and father which lives in a one bedroom 600 sq ft cramped apartment in the hood in Bronx, or with her sister and her sister's two kids that have an abusive father. My question is, she took her out of a comfortable home to a cramped or dangerous situation which is out of my control. Do I have a chance to get custody or at least have the judge return my child to Florida? Myself and the mother were never married and she has only been in NY for 2 weeks.
