I recently got married and my child and I moved with my husband. My family has a very strong dislike for my husband. Recently my husband got upset and got into a little of a disagreement. My child. Heard him saying some things that was not nice and her grandparents now my parent refuse to give me back my child. These are both over 70 year old people and cannot even wash her hair for her. I go to my daughter every day to make sure she is okay and that she is seen to. These elderly grandparents cannot even do homework with my child. They bad mouth in front of my child and is refusing for her to come home even though she tells them that she is happy with her mom and wants to be with her. My question is what can I do. They gavean ultimatum divorce my husband and move back to them or I can never have my child again in my possession.

I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
You are the child's mother, and you are the child's caregiver. If you want, you must go fetch your child from your parents.
I don't know why you think that your parents have a say in where your child lives.
