I'm needing to obtain full legal and physical custody of my

I'm needing to obtain full legal and physical custody of my 8 year old son. He has lived with me 100% of the time since he was born. I have an open child support case filed in 2009 ordering his father to pay monthly child support. He has never paid a dime. The last time my son saw his father was in 2011. I have no idea where he is and no way to get a hold of him. I just keep track of his criminal cases through online records. He has a history of drug addiction and a criminal record of burglary, substance abuse/paraphernelia, and stay away orders. I also have a police record of him assaulting me in 2011.It has been a while since I have received legal advise on this issue. How do I go about getting full legal custody of my son?

My bf is going through a divorce neither of them have filed for divorce yet and the judge said that they can both see the daughter just switch her off til the final decision is made. Well the mother is neglectful and munipulating and says that if he does not sign the papers that she has then she is not gonna give him his daughter and it's his turn to have her this week. The thing is they both want the divorce but her papers say that he verbally and emotionally abused her and it's not true she cheated on him and doesn't want to look like the bad parent he said he has no problem signing but not if the papers say abuse cause he's not going to take the fall for something he didn't do can she legally keep his daughter away from him when they is no legal custody yet and she also says she doesn't care what the judge says she is not gonna let him have her unless he signs and she wants him to sign without a lawyer.
