Its going on 2 months now and my daughter mother refuses to let me speak to my daughter or see her i call everyday and she never answers she recently moved from RI to Connecticut without me having knowledge. This is not the first time she has kept me from seeing my daughter. Ive been in her life since she was born and i just want to see my child.
If your daughter lived here for at least 6 months prior to being taken to CT, jurisdiction over her is in RI. You need to file a petition in RI ASAP before she has lived in CT for 6 months so that jurisdiction doesn't move there.
Contact me or one of the other RI family court attorneys here on Avvo directly. Any one of us would be happy to discuss your situation with you.
