I suggest that u def go to the courts and see if you can do anything. Every state has different laws so research the laws in your state and see what u can do. There r judges that understand ur situation and may grant you temp custody for the duration of the trip.
My FI has an 18 yr old and for her 15th birthday we took her to Colombia as her Bday gift. When we arrived at the passport agency (She resides in FL and we are in NY so we had to go to the agency for a passport) the agent suggested that we bring along a letter of authorization from her mom (AKA A**hole) just so we cover our behinds. And Thank God we did because upon exciting Colombia they requested it! Also I do not think they would have given us a pp for her w/o a letter.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

since then we have faced a ridiculous battle with her extremely immature and selfish mother who refused to let my future step daughter come.
it ended up in court and today we finally got the decision. our whole journey was made worth it when the judge issued an order that she be able to come!!!! SHE'S COMING TO THE WEDDING!!!!!!
i don't know if anyone will read this far into a thread this old, but i felt like i needed to say how much the support of everyone on here has meant to me. i knew when we were sitting there today, waiting for the decision, that there was a group of girls out there, who i have never met (but feel like i've known forever) thinking good thoughts and saying their prayers for us. WELL, it worked, and i have to say that i wouldn't have ever gotten through this without these girls! thank you EVERYONE here for your support and making me feel like i'm not the only one who has ever been through something like this, and i didn't have to get through it alone!!!

I created a thread on our situation and i am glad that FI's niece is coming to the wedding. At first her dad refused to let her go but now he is letting her go.
