    Answered . I agree that this is a situation where you should get an attorney. First for Justin, and then a family law attorney to go after dad.

    Answered . You can hire an attorney to help you with the police and child protective services. I doubt that criminal charges will be filed, however child protective services could get involved. You are obviously concerned about the situation, so you should call an experienced attorney and tell them everything.
