A: If there is a current custody order that she is in violation of, your son would need to file a contempt action against his former wife. Additionally, he needs to consider filing a modification of custody action if prior to this stunt mother has not seen the child in a year.

A: You need to have your son take the proper legal routes to handling this situation. This may include legitimizing the child, if he hasn't already done so, and seeking custody. He needs to consult with an attorney who can help him with the proper course of action. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
