A: No, you should not take her back. Your ex-husband just keeping your daughter is no better
than you just keeping your daughter. When you first break up, it’s important to ask for a court order if you and your ex cannot reach an agreement on how much parenting time each parent gets. The courts are busy, so make sure that in this case, all you’re asking for is an interim parenting schedule order that mimics your daughter’s care before your separation. If you were the primary caregiver before separation, then that is what you should ask for in the interim order.
