A: You didn't make it clear if there is a custody order. If there is such an order, the order controls until it is changed by the court. If you have custody and you voluntarily allowed your daughter to live with the father for a period of time and then picked up your daughter, you cannot be sent to jail and haven't violated the order. If there is no order, you both have equal custody and again can't be put in jail for taking your daughter. However, if there is no order it is highly recommended that you get a custody order.
