My husband and I wanted to have his daughter turning 9 this October 2015, for good since she was sexually abused by her mother's boyfriend cousin (the guy got charged and will go to court soon). We would like to know and get advice on what will happen and steps. Since then, the mother is fighting and will fight for her daughter she said and my husband and I will fight too. We are worried for her safety (daughter) since what happened. And it happened under the mother's care in her house and didn't know what is going on with her daughter and let other visitor to sleep over. Plus the mother keeps talking to the daughter on the phone we didn't know what they are talking and after that daughter doesn't want to come with that to come home and wants to stay with mum so our world is shattered we want her safe and her mum might be telling her things. What age can they choose to? Plus the mother said that the daughter wants to stay with her and it's her words not mine. In case that we would like to get the daughter and daughter and mum doesn't like but we are doing this for her safety what can we do? Shall we call the police or child protection department etc?
