Hi
Your daughter is fully entitled to have her baby in her care - and there is no requirement to return the baby to the fathers house at all
On one occasion when she is out and has the baby physically in her arms she should simply walk away and meet you and you can then take her home.
If she receives any threats she should call the police.
At the same time she should make an immediate application to the court for a Residence Order.
If she has been the day to day carer of the baby until now there is little doubt that the Residence Order will be granted - with regular contact - possibly including staying contact - with the father.
I hope that this is of assistance please ask if you need further details

Hi


If the police are called would be look bad on my daughteher and also if she does have her can he then keep her again if shes in his care or does he have to return her

Hi
Until a Residence Order is made either parent is entitled to have the child in their care
Whilst it would be better if she can get away without Police involvement there is no real problem if they do get involved
