I am a single mom and I have raised my daughter on my own for the past 12 years. Her father had been in and out of her life since she was 4. Recently I got engaged and was going to move to Rochester NY with my daughter. I went through all the proper channels to make sure it was legal. I knew my daughter was not thrilled with the idea but this place was very familiar with where we were going along with the people. The day before we are getting ready to leave I get a text from her step mother saying my daughter was in the hospital for a panic attack. No one called me when this occurred nothing. I soon find out her father went to the courts and said I was a threat to my daughter and they granted him temporary custody of her.
I should have had a court date within 72 hours of this happening. Never happened. Almost a month later and having to get a new attorney I still don't have my child back.
The accusations that her father said about me were found false. So I am completely lost as to how screwed up the system is and how they are even allowing this to continue.
