he had a dispute with his current wife which led to a PFA, I went to pick up our daughter and I was denied and almost charged with a felony. I am not sure why I was denied. he and I have our divorce decree which states that HE and I have 50/50 custody of her but the police advised that his wife has custody of her because of the PFA, is that right?
Without seeing the PFA order no one can properly advise you. It does seem odd that the stepmother would have been granted custody, however. I suggest that you try obtain a copy of the PFA order and consult with an experienced family law attorney in your area to determine what your best option is.
You need to talk to an experienced family law attorney as soon as possible. It is very odd that you would be denied custody of your own child because that child's step-mother got a PFA against the child's father. As Attorney Hilbush stated, we would need to see a copy of the PFA to advise you properly. There are legal remedies that you can pursue to address this situation. Good luck to you!
