I have to go pro se in my custody battle for my daughter. My ex wife currently was awarded sole custody not by anything I did horribly wrong. I didnt have adequate accommadations at my old place and the mother alienated me from my daughter by not showing for exchanges and though the court didnt believe me and my ex said I was to blame for not seeing my daughter.Now at present after fighting to see my daughter for a few years I am taking her to court to modify custody. I live in PA mother used to live in NY with child about 40 mins from me. Without my knowledge or the knowledge of the court she took off to TX. Is she really aloud to do that according to NY law? I can't find specific statutes stating yes or no.The area she moved to is severely unsafe! I miss my daughter please help.Thank you unfortunately I have been unable to get a lawyer to help because "the matter is already in process" or they want a huge retainer. The court in NY where my child is actually supposed to be living has ruled to keep jurisdiction. They will not let me file a change of venue. I am going to keep fighting to see my daughter. I know there must be things I can do to help my case. Just one more thing I wanted to add is the current custody is mother has sole custody with visitation with the father as agreed upon by the parties. I did once before try to get a set visitation order thats when they gave her custody.
