My daughter lives with her mom in another county. There was never a custody thing. We were never married. I am on the birth cert. The mother and I had an arguement a few months ago. We have not spoken since. I have been trying to get ahold of her for the past two months...I found out she passed away about a month ago. Nodbody told me. My duaghter I guess is now with her grandparents. They refuse to talk to me or let me see hr. I am her legal father! I should have automatic custody. I went there with the police department to get her and the police told me that it was a civil issue and i needed to file for custody. They have no right to keep my daughter. Why should i have to file to see her? I cant afford a lawyer and i am so worried. i need to make sure she is ok. Please helpI am on chil support with d.o.r....I pay child support through income deduction. Paternity was established years ago. I have been paying every week and the mom has passed away. They took out again friday.
