Custody run

I live in alberta and there is a custody order in place that I voluntarily signed. No children services involvement. No police enforcement clause. Would there be legal reprecussions and what would they be if I do not return my daughter to her custodial parent after a visit? This would only be if i can even get a visit as I am currently being denied access by the custodial parent because I am not paying child support which there is no order for.

He should abide by mutually agreed agreement for the custody of the child.
It is considered a legal agreement even though the police or the court did not endorse or enforce it.
however, in some instances, the police may decide not to get involved because it is not a court order.
that does not mean that either of you should elope with the child without proper notice to the other parent.

The person who has custody isn't the other parent. I voluntarily gave her custody while I sorted my life out and when it was time to give my daughter back to me she is saying no and not allowing me to see her.

Again, you should respect a mutually agreed custody arrangement between you and your baby mother.

Should you elope to an known destination with your daughter without the consent of her mother, you could face abduction charges.
