Father filed for sole custody, mother not served yet
My boyfriend has filed for sole custody of his daughter. The mother has not been served yet but she knows. He is afraid she will leave the state before getting served. We put a stipulation in the filed papers that the mother cannot leave the state pending custody hearing. Will this hold if she has not been served? Also he is thinking of filing for emergency custody because the mother and child will not have a place to live within a couple of weeks. She plans to live in a tent on a campground. Can he file for emergency custody after he has filed custody papers? There is so much more about this case. Thank you for any help.
