If you are contemplating filing for divorce, do it now. You have no way to enforce any custody or parenting time desire that you have without a court order and you cannot get a court order until you file. See a lawyer NOW so that you understand all of your rights and so that you know what you can do to protect your relationship with your son and so that you cannot ensure your son's best interests are protected.Good Luck.
Where did she take your son? Do you know? Is it out of state? If you have no idea then you must contact the police. If she has left the state or country you may have to contact the FBI. Most importantly contact a local divorce attorney who has expertise in Father's Rights cases. Do not wait. Good luck in reuniting with your son.
