In Oklahoma. My son had some scratches on him from he and I

In Oklahoma. My son had some scratches on him from he and I wrestling during one of his outbursts. He is autistic and was close to running into traffic on a busy road. I was restraining him so that he would not run into the road and be injured. He has a documented history of running and being physically aggressive. He has even been placed into a inpatient treatment center for several months. When my son went to school they called DHS and filed a complain. DHS then told my wife that I could not be around my son or stay in the house until they do an investigation. Do they have the right to force me not to see my son or force me out of the house while they do an investigation?

A story short, my son has raised my grandson since birth.

A long story short, my son has raised my grandson since birth. The biological mother was in and out of the child's life with greater than 6 months before attempting to see my grandson. My son decided to fight for custody. During this time, we found out the mother had been receiving child support from another guy. The courts stated the mother wasn't unfit but gave my son the parents visitation rights. The mother never came to get my grandson so we continued to raise him. This past April, the mother signed POA papers to the alleged paternal grandmother, but we still had our visitations. The paternal grandmother gave the child to his biological mother while collecting benefits. And the biological mother gave him back to my son. This week the biological mother asked if I could be the legal guardian to my grandson and his sister. However, children service has taken both kids doing an ex parte. They said the mother is unfit.... Which we knew, and the paternal grandmother isn't fit at this time. Both kids are in children service custody at a foster home. We've been fighting over 2 years for custody of my grandson with expensive lawyer fees, transcripts, and multiple appeals. We received a few weeks ago that the appellate court agree with the juvenile court stating the biological mother isn't unfit. However ; here we are with the children taken away because the mother is unfit. The alleged biological father signed the birth certificate, however he wants nothing to do with the child and according to the courts he is an uninvolved parent. Since we found out about them, all court documents was sent to them. They never attended any court hearings until this ex parte. They did not want to be involved with the child. Now the paternal grandmother states she wants to take my grandson and quit her job as a housekeeper so that she can collect benefits. My grandson had no idea who they were when she took the police with her to his school and took him because she had the POA papers. None of these ppl were involved in my grandson's life until April 2016. My son is the only person that can visit my grandson. At the ex parte, the magistrate said that we were non relatives and she didn't want to here from us. The mother has warrants and said she was going to turn herself in but is currently on Facebook laughing and living her life while her children is in a foster home. My grandson has a loving family, has traveled to many states including going to Disney World. He has has in own room at his house with his dad and at our house. I'm a physical therapist for almost 8 years, my husband that we've been married almost 25 years is an insurance claims manager, and our son which is the only father my grandson knows has a full time job at a factory and has taken great care of my grandson since birth because the biological mother didn't want to take him home from the hospital. We have Dr notes daycare and school notes, and all kinds of witnesses that reports our son is the only parent in my grandson's life. We don't want any benefits and these ppl that has recently entered into my grandson's life only wants benefits. We truly dont know what to do. We've spent almost $10k on courts, attorney fees, etc and have used retirement funds to help with the case. We're truly at a loss and don't know where to go or what to do. Hopefully I was able to describe what has happened, but willing to answer any questions. Thank you so much for your time. Kimberly Wills

I had a child support hearing the last week of May in Ohio.

I had a child support hearing the last week of May in Ohio. The juvenile court judge in Hamilton County stated that he would make a ruling by 6/29/016. A ruling still hasn't been made. Do I have any recourse at this time to compel the court to issue the ruling? Is here a period of time I would have to wait before it is an issue? What could be the reason that it takes this long to rule? Do I have any options?
