The police may help you get her back. This is custodial interference, which is a crime. The father of a child born out of wedlock has no legal decision making (custody) or parenting time rights until a court enters an order granting him rights. Therefore, if he gets upset and withholds your daughter, call the police. Also, I do not recommend that you withhold your daughter from him just because you can. You have a written agreement and are about to go to court, so don't do anything that makes you look unreasonable.
