Hello I am needing information on how to obtain a custody order. My ex and I were never married and broke up a few years ago-our daughter is 4. Currently there is a child support order through the state but no custody order. My ex threatens to keep my daughter from me-at one point she kept her from me for 3 weeks. I don't have a lot of money but I need to have something put in place for custody but i'm on a low income.
