Yes, you need to file through the courts. Depending on where you live, if you do not establish a legal custody order, he may have all of the same rights you do. Meaning, if he takes her, there is not much the police can do to get her back to you. You would have to go through the courts to get her back, and she could remain with him the whole time.
