I am a grandparent who has sole physical and legal custody

I am a grandparent who has sole physical and legal custody of my 4 year old grandson in virginia. His father is a drug user. During court this past July, his father was granted visitation rights every other weekend and one week for each month in the summer. My grandson has come home saying that Daddy smokes in a bowl, which Im assuming is a bong. I took my grandson to a child psychologist and he revealed this to her also, as well as saying Daddy is mean to him, his older sister wont play with him. He has also mentioned in normal conversations.... Grandma, drive real fast like Daddy does, and Daddy says on short rides me and Ari don\'t have to wear our seat belts. He cries everytime he has to go to Daddys house. Do these things warrant an emergency hearing from the court? He|"s suppose to spend Christmas week at his fathers and Im afraid he will be exposed to drugs etc. Of course, his father is denying all of this. What is the best course of action for me to take?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: The state is Virginia and the last court date we had was in July. His father was ordered to take parenting classes which he has not done yet.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. I have taken him to a psychologist and have her report verifying what he is saying. (I was not in the room when he told her also. He also started play therapy last week and will be seeing the therapist weekly. I have the report. He states that Daddy calls him names and Ari doesn't like him. Im not sure whether to act on this now or to wait for an additional report from his play therapist.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No. Just advice on what the best course of action for me to take is. And whether its wiser to wait on the play therapists findings or to proceed now.
