Can my girlfriend go back to Florida and get her kids from thier dad? 3 Answers as of July 07, 2011The father is a pothead and he doesn’t feed the kids healthy. She gave the kids a choice to come to Va with her or stay in Fl. The only reason that they didn’t want to come to Va is the 1000-mile ride. We are just trying to find out if we can legally go get them.

If they were never married, she can legally get them. The problem is that Dad will likely turn around and file a Paternity Action and a Motion for Immediate Return of the Minor Children. It is probably a better course of action to take this up in court. I suggest you consult a local Family Law attorney to discuss your case in greater detail and learn all of your rights and options. Good luck.
