Hello Ely, yes I am the father. I am the non-custodial parent she is the custodial per a court order in Illinois. He has lived with his mother at her mothers house for the past 3 years. She got mad and moved to a friends house. Within 3 days she dropped him off at her mothers and said (verbally to her mother, and texted to me) he would remain with his grandmother until I was back. This was almost 4 weeks ago he was dropped off.
I will be seeking to be the custodial parent. However I am 30 days out from traveling ( due to neck surgery). I didn't know if he could stay with the grandparents legally or if he had to go. Also is managing custody an order that is granted or is it signed over?
No problem Ely, Thank you for your time
