He has a feloy, but he also has pictures of bruises and markings and people willing to confess that she is mean to the son
This depends on the circumstances of your case. Custody cases are typically evaluated based on "the best interests of the child" so, in theory, it is possible that the judge could find that the child is better off with you than with his mother, despite your felony. Is it likely? Probably not. You need to consult with a family law attorney to determine what your options are as far as getting custody.
Being illegal will not necessarily bar you from having custody of your child. Many of my immigration clients who are not in legal status have gotten custody of their children. However, as my colleague has pointed out, your felony may make you deportable, so you would also be well advised to speak to an immigration attorney who has experience with criminal matters.
