You should find a local attorney and get advice based on a more detailed conversation. There are too many factors to consider to provide you better guidance. The judge did not flip a coin on the order, there were reasons the outcome was how it was.

You'll need to get a family law attorney to help you file the proper forms to regain custody. Because you have lost custody, you will need to show a change of circumstances.
There are a number of issues raised by your post. You're going to need to have a really honest discussion with an attorney.
I wish you the best.
