HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.I am sorry to hear of this situation. And I am assuming the parents were never married. But your son is on the birth certificate, correct?I suggest you should go to the clerk of the court in the county where the child has lived consistently for the last 6 months and request the packet of forms to file for custody. Ask the clerk if there can be an emergency hearing for temporary custody. Of course, your son needs to do this. You cannot do it for him. For there to be an emergency hearing, I suggest, your son should tell the clerk the child is being hidden from him and that it is affecting the child and not in the best interest of the child.
Please let me know if you have other questions in this regard. Keep in mind, I can only answer and provide information for what you ask. I do not know what you need to know, unless you tell me. Please rate positive as this is how I get credit for my time and information.Thank you
