Thank you for using JustAnswer. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs, and I look forward to assisting you.
Your son needs to file a motion to modify custody as quickly as possible.
CPS has advised correctly that, until the current custody order is modified, the child must be turned over to the mother. Otherwise, youe son risks being held in contempt and sanctioned.
In his motion he will need to present evidence of the neglect and unsafe environment in the mother's home. The court will make a decision on the motion based upon what is in the best interests of the child.
I realize this is probably not the answer you were hoping to receive. Also, please remember that this is not a moral judgement on my part. As a professional, however, I am sometimes placed in the position of having to deliver news which is not favorable to a customer's legal position, but accurately reflects their position under the law. I hate it, but it happens and I only ask that you not penalize me with a bad or poor rating for having to deliver less than favorable news.
