Hello single mommies! I have a different kind of dilemma I need some opinions on. I have recently got into a fight with my family, which ended horribly. They have threatned me that they will no longer help me if I basically don't do things their way, so I chose not to receive any help from them. I have gotten kicked out of my mothers house and ended up having nowhere to go. Because of my situation, I resorted to calling my childs father to come get his daughter while I get myself together. He agreed and she has been gone for almost 1 month now. To make a long story short, I have gotten myself together and move into my new apt aug 1st. My daughters father has agreed to bring her back anytime I feel I am truly ready for her to come back. Since my family found out she is in his care, they have said things like she's never coming back, he will never return her n he will try to take custody. I do not believe he will, we are not together but we do have a great relationship and I do trust him. But now they say they've received a phn call from "child support" claiming that if she is gone for more than 30 days, he can automatically take custody and I can't get her back if I tried. I am asking if anyone knows if this is true. It would just bring my stress level down alot if I knew they were only talking to stress me more. Thanks.
