Because of how heated things are between you and your ex-, I believe you would be wise to retain counsel to approach her (or her attorney, if she has one) about resuming visitation with your son. In addition, I believe you and your son would both likely benefit from re-unification or reconciliation therapy with a qualified therapist. Although that will cost you some money, I have personally seen it yield great benefits. In addition, if your son's mother were to push for such therapy, the court would probably order that it take place.

Where does your child now reside? That will probably dictate where your legal case should occur and where you should begin your search for a lawyer.
