I have recently found out my ex's family has been contacting lawyers to try to get custody of my son. My son's dad has been locked up in prison for two years, he gets out in October of this year. His parents take my son once a week and that is if they even have the time. If they take them I have to work around their schedule. They take him when it works for them and at their convienence. I found out they had their teenage son driving my son in his truck without a license, they have taken him to Michigan without my permission and they never contact me by phone and its all through texts messages. Currently there are NO grandparents rights in place. I dont know what grounds they have to try to take my son away. But i sat in a homeless shelter pregnant with my son and they had no contact.I have been raising my son on my own since he was born with no help from the grandparents. WE WERE NEVER MARRIED. I have been out of the homeless shelter for almost two years and have been living in the same place since. I also have a job (same one for almost a year now) and going to school to be a surgical technologist. His father cant provide a stable environment for our son or one that is safe. Is my son's grandparents able to go for grandparents rights if i dont let them see my son anymore?
