If there is any risk that the mother will simply remove the child and refuse to return her then you shoudl make an immediate applictaion for an Emergency Child Arrangement Order stating that the Child lives with you.It WILL be granted - there will then be a process where the court will consider where the child should live in the long term - but I have no doubt that the end result will be for you to have an Order stating that the child lives with you.You will need to apply to the court on a form C100http://hmctsformfinder.justice.gov.uk/courtfinder/forms/c100-eng.pdfYou will need permission to make the application - so at section three put down that you are her grandparents and that she has always lived with youAt section 13 you are saying that it is urgent and that is why there is no time for mediation.I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further detailsClare
