From the bare facts that you stated here, it sounds like you do. However, you need to consult with an attorney immediately to preserve all of your rights. I am sorry this has happened. Best of luck.

Sounds like it. When you went to court March 21st, you should have asked for an emergency custody but I have no clue what you or your attorney did if you had one. You may be able to get custody or you could do it by visitation. You don't have an attorney, at least consult one.
