Taking custody before any papers

I have just joined the club and wanted to know if anyone else has done what I have done. I just have taken my 4 yr old daughter to Ill. with me to my mother’s. There has been no papers or anything filed. My wife has had another man staying at my house. He has smacked my daughter opened hand in the face several times, sent her to bed without supper repeatedly, and has also touched her genitals.

My wife has nothing! So I took matters into my own hands with the advice of a lawyer. My wife is livid and making very obscene calls to our house.

I have been recording them for future use and have also been in touch with DCFS. If anyone has any advice it would be appreciated.
