I wouldn't have her to my elderly mother's home, either.

They don't live together?

I guess the dinner could have been held elsewhere... but I don't know that the OP had the duty to invite the GF to someone else's home, i.e., the great-grandmother.

A saying comes to mind... keep your friends close but your enemies closer. Or something like that...

I dont know where the previouse poster lives, but here in Ohio as long as the fathers name is on the birth certificate he has the right to take the child and the police will not intervene it is considered a civil matter, and once the father files the petition for custody the mothe is not allowed to leave the county lat alone the state with the child.If i were you i would have the father file for custody now and put a stop to all the madness now.
