How is it that a judge would give physical custody to a man who's barely been in their child's life? Barely meaning, whenever he felt like finding out what's going on in my life.

He took his daughter in for 10 months so you could move out of state... how is that 'barely' being in her life? He was her primary caregiver for almost a year, I can't blame him for not wanting to give her up now.

It sounds like Jodi said and also all states have their own laws on custody issues so keep this in mind when you go to fight it. One state is going to do one thing and the other state will do something else. You did not think clearly on this when you set this up.

So you handed your child over for 10 months? You moved out of state? Which also meant you intended to move out of state with your child? The child that ALSO happens to be his.

I'm not seeing lies or foul play. You DID hand the child over while you pursued your needs, and then you DID expect him to live with the fact that his child would be interstate. I'd file against you too if it were me. What lies did he tell?

He signed an agreement that he would take care of my daughter for only 10 months while I moved out of state and set up household for her. He filed against me (in NJ)two weeks before he was to turn her over to me. The judge told him he signed the agreement, set up holiday visitation, and told him stick to it. He then filed in the state he lives in, and that judge completely ignored the court order from NJ, and granted him physical custody. There's a lot of lies and foul play on his end.

I'm sorry. But without all the information and even then we probably wouldn't be able to know what the judge was thinking when he made his decision. So did he he sole physical custody and you were given visitation?
