Did you have custody set up in the first place? If not then as Jodi said, he has the same rights to have her as you do. You should have set up custody, visitation, and child support (all separate issues really) so that it protected you, the child and him in a few ways. It would protect the child's best interests in whom she would live with, visitation with the other parent, having relationships for both and for her welfare. It would have protected the parents in the sense that it would list who had custody, who had visitation and what those visits were, who paid the child support and what amount according to the state, country, or province you live in is set for. It would also set out the rules on how things would work with this. It would hold both parents liable for their set responsiblities.

Basically, fathers have the same rights as mothers. So that is why they can't just bring her back. If you have been to court, did you at least get visitation? Just remember, being a mother doesn't give you automatic right to have full custody.
