My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Ohio
My ex-husband currently has custody of my 4-year old son. He is now locked up in a "residential facility" and will not be released until later this year. My ex and my son live with my ex's mother who has since taken on responsibility for my child. I would like to know if with my ex locked up, if I am able to take my son from the home where he has been to be with me, his mother.
My son has been in the same home and in a stable environment for almost 2 years now and while I am aware that taking him from that could be bad, I have filed for joint parenting and we are in court proceedings for it. But again, with my ex locked up, those proceedings have halted.
I have a home for my son, a bed for him to sleep in, food for him to eat and am able to get him to where he needs to be when he needs to be there. The current agreement we had in place was for me to get my child one day a week from 2pm to 8pm. My ex's mother was letting me get him at 11am so we could have more time together. Now, she is saying that she will stick to the current agreement.
Again, I would just like to know what rights I have (since my ex has full custody) and if there is anything more I can do at this time.
