A: You should goto Family Court & file BOTH a Writ of Habeas Corpus as well as an Order to Show Cause & petition for Custody. Do this as soon as possible – if you wait, the Judge will perceive that any urgency to the situation has abated. Call a Bronx Child Custody Attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
