Legal Question

Asked on: 5/26/13, 2:58 pm

I live in California. I have been my child's custodial parent for 15 and a half years. Her father has never paid child support and has rarely spent time with her. My daughter is a troubled teen and is receiving mental health counseling. I receive state benefits for her because holding a job has been impossible with her behavior. She ran away from home and is with her father in another city without my consent. There are no custody documents on file with the court. Can I take the police to his home and bring my daughter back home with me?
