Without court orders, you and the father each have equal rights to custody. Generally, you can pick up your son from anyone other than his father. You cannot remove him from his father's custody without his father's consent.
Ultimately, you need to get custody orders from a court, otherwise you face a battle of possession with you and the father taking custody of your son any time he is with someone else.
