As far as I am concerned the courts effectively kidnapped the child.

kidnap definition
kidˇnap (kidnap′)
transitive verb kidnapped -ˇnapped′ or kidnaped -ˇnaped′, kidnapping -ˇnap′ˇping or kidnaping -ˇnap′ˇing
  1. to steal (a child)
  2. to seize and hold or carry off (a person) against that person's will, by force or fraud, often for ransom
I would look into suing the court.
