Q. My daughter has a custody agreement signed by judge. She follows the schedule the father has taken her wont return her
A: There is something your daughter can do: She has to take the father to court and ask that he be held in contempt for not abiding by the terms of the parenting time (formerly known as custody) order. I encourage her to hire an attorney to do this for her so it gets done correctly. If the father is held in contempt the judge must order him to pay your daughter's attorney fees for this procedure.
Q. Can we ask the Court for a Default judgement against 2 of 3 served defendants at this time?
A: Probably. Depending on the wording of your complaint (your attachment won't go through this system) it's possible you'll be limited to a default judgment as to liability and still need a hearing at which you prove your damages and each defendant has an opportunity to try to disprove them. There are a couple of technical hoops you've got to jump through to obtain and enforce a default judgment. While I admire your determination in researching and filing your complaint, I encourage you to contact an attorney at this point to make sure those hoops get jumped through.

Q. 1/2..My son's biological father (never married) has never met or wished to have anything to do with him. We haven't
A: After marriage you and your new husband can file a petition for adoption of the child. Do NOT try this on your own -- there are too many opportunities to do it incorrectly and the stakes are too high! Hire an attorney who does adoptions and let him or her make sure all the details are handled correctly.
