Q: My son has been kidnapped by his grandparents and they refuse to return him to me. What should I do?
xxx was my attorney during my custody case a few years back. Prior to the Corona breakout, my son was punished at home for refusing to do his chores, and went to school saying he wanted to kill himself, counselors had him admitted to Brentwood. There, he accused me of abuse. DCFS began an investigation and he wasn't allowed to come home until they finished the investigation. I was asked who I wanted him to stay with temporarily until the investigation was done. I said I'd rather him stay with the xxx, rather than my own mother, for the time being. DCFS finished their investigation and found me innocent of the allegation. I have attempted contacting xxx (grandmother) to return my son to me. They have refused and tried to have a protective order filed against me twice. Both judges refused their request. What should I do? I am still his legal guardian. Why are they doing this?

A: Call your local police department or sheriff's office for assistance in having your son returned. They can assist you in pressing charges also if you wish to do so. Also, contact a family law attorney to further dvise you of your options.
