What is the name of your state? WA
I've had custody of my 4 yr. old daughter since birth. Her mom sees her once a year on her birthday. We never went to court or anything but she is supposed to be paying child support. She lives in CA. I let her come here to pick up my daughter for a visit and now she is trying to keep her. It's been 4 months and I think she is going to file for custody in CA after 6 months. What can I do? Do I need to file for custody in WA? Can she just keep her?
