My son whom is 5 tested positive for THC after he had been at his mom's for 2 days. He has came to our house on the weekends and some during the week. Complaining about how his mother blows smoke in his face and he hates it. We hadn't done anything about it until we went to get him on the 8th of April and the apartment he was at smelled of pot smoke and his mother looked high and so did my son. We left and got some drug tests which were positive We alerted the local sheriffs office made a report gave statements and they signed a warrant dhr is also involved now after we made a report with them also. She is in jail as of today. Will they play the pity card and try to give my son back to his mom or Can we win full custody of him or just temporary custody?
It sounds as though you should be able to secure an order granting you emergency custody of the child as well as a final order awarding you custody. I suggest you immediately consult with an attorney to move forward with this action. Good luck.
