You'll need to file a proper Motion to Modify Legal Custody. If you know where your daughter's father is living now, you will need to serve him with a copy of your motion. Then, you'll need to have a hearing on this case to get a court order from the judge.
Under the circumstances, I recommend that you use a lawyer for this. I can certainly help you with this. Please feel free to call me.
