Child Custody

questions & answers

Question: My husband lives in Texas, I moved out of Texas over a year ago. We have no standing custody agreement for our 2 yr old daughter he is now locked up in Montana. I'm ready to file for divorce and sole custody but my sister in law says I broke the law by taking my daughter out of state with no custody agreement. Did I break the law and does he have a right to take my daughter away.

Answer: Family law and criminal law is different in each state. You may want to look at Texas law to learn whether you violated Texas law. You may want to consult with a Texas criminal defense attorney who specializes in custodial/access interference cases.
