Ex husband got emergency temporary custody a month ago and I've been seeing her everyday during this investigation and he all of a sudden has become bitter over very selfish reasons and does not want to let me see her or know what's going on
As long as he is following the order and not denying you any time the order expressly provides, yes he can. he does not need a reason to exercise his authority as he sees fit. If you lost your rights to see the child during what I assume is a DSS investigation, his allowing you access may actually have been contrary to law or his own order. Consult the order and you can decide what to do from there.
Without knowing what your Order says, it is impossible for us to speculate if he can suddenly keep her from you. If you haven't already, I strongly urge you to take the order to local counsel and obtain representation. You do not want to do this on your own.
