My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Florida
My husband and I have a 5 y/o and a 12 y/o (he is stepfather to the 12 y/o). When my 12 y/o was 3, I tried to get sole custody due to his biological father being a threat. Biological father also wanted to give up his rights...which he did. The courts said I could not have sole custody without a male figure, so my parents "helped" and were given temporary legal guardianship (until he turns 18). My child has ALWAYS lived with me and my parents have NEVER been "guardians" aside from the paperwork saying so. They live 2 hours away and occasionally he spends the weekend with them...that's it. Recently, after an argument with my parents, they came unannounced and took him without notice or arrangement and have been cold. I have always had a good relationship with them, but they are not answering their phone, email, etc. We have contacted the police and because of that paper, there is nothing they can do. We cannot afford an attorney at this time. How can we get our son back...this seems criminal and is tearing me apart in many ways.
Also, my son is an honor roll student, my husband a firefighter, and we have never had any type of criminal records or issues of any kind that would indicate we are bad parents. I hope this helps and I hope someone can help us! Thank you in advance.
