In that case your friend needs to complete the form C100 here

https://formfinder.hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/c100-eng.pdf

in triplicate

and the EX160

https://www.stepchange.org/Portals/0/Clients/EX160_form.pdfasking for an Order that the child is returned to her care and that her ex cannot remove the child from her care

and take it to the court as soon as posisble - before 4 - and ask for an urgent immediate hearing.

Once she has the order she can ask the Police to help her recover the child

Please ask if you need further details

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
