How does filing for child custody work?
Can I file for child custody if she has first but my file date is sooner than hers?

If she already has an order of custody, you can file a petition for a change of custody. If not, you can file a petition for custody regardless whether she has filed one previously. You should be prepared to show the reasons why the court ought to award you custody.
