Do it the legal way and have her served. You will need to file the proper custody paperwork at the courthouse, then wait until she is served. Once she has been served, take the children legally. Get a lawyer and be prepared for a fight.

Answer Yes. It is possible for joint custody to be awarded under such circumstances. Two of the biggest factors would be the age of t…he child or children and the viability of the parenting plan submitted to the court that outlines the arrangements for the transportation of the child or children between the custodial parents.
Six months, provided the separated parent has not filed an Injunction in the home state.

If there was a legal divorce and division of marital property, the custody of the child(ren) MUST have been addressed in the divorce action. Check your divorce papers carefull…y. If it somehow happened that it was not addressed at the time of divorce, and you do not wish the father to have custody, you can go back to court and re-open the child custody portion of divorce proceedings, and a judge will make a determination as to who is the more 'fit' parent for primary custody.As long as the parenting plan is filed, yes. But, there are far more issues to be addressed if the father is not married to the mother. see link
Can the custodial parent who lives in 1 state file for child support in the state the non-custodial parent lives in?
Yes, IF the child is being placed back into the home under a probation period which is part of their reunification plan. The reason for this is to see if the child and par…ent are able to reunite without further abuse. The state will monitor the child and the parents, if there are further incidents of abuse because they are on probationary period the state will remove them and place them back into foster care or input more intensive family service programs.
I have a court order for child support in state where both parents lived at time of order. Father now lives in another state but is in arrears. What state do I file for contempt?
The parent with custody would file in the region where THE CHILD lives. Contact your local Attorney General's office. Interstate cases are complicated and better left to the p…rofessionals.
Does the father have custody of he child even though the child lives with him but both the parents were never married. Can the father come after the mother for full custody.?
With no courts orders in place, the father has no legal right to have the child living with him. The mother has sole custody and control in all states, and he can still be obl…igated to pay support for this time period. He needs to immediately file a motion with the court to establish his rights and for at least temporary custody, pending a full hearing, before she gets wind of the fact that she can take the child away from him at any time. see links below.
If the non custodial parent have the children living in the household in another state does the non custodial parent have to file to change the child support order in that state of the child resides?
Joint legal, however joint physical is more complicated, though not impossible.

When a child becomes 18 years old and he is still in high school can he leave the custodial parent and live with the other parent when both parents live in the state of Ohio?
The age of majority in Ohio is 18 or graduation from high school, whichever comes first. So yes, unless extenuating circumstances apply, they can.
Length of time a child lives with a parent is not a factor in determining custody or modifying it. Custody is awarded based on the court's opinion of the child's best interest…s.
Can the state court take custody of your child living with his grand parents who have temporary custody?
How long does the custodial parent have to be away with no contact for it to be considered child abandonment in the State of Arizona so the non custodial parent can file for sole custodial rights?
Abandonment of a child is defined in Arizona Revised Statute Section 8-201(1) as failing to supervise or support a child with the intent to allow that neglect to go on for an …indefinite time. If this form of neglect continues for a period of six months the statute presumes the parent has abandoned the child. However courts will consider certain extenuating circumstances on the part of the parent accused of child abandonment before making a final determination.
