How can I get back my son?

About 1 year ago my husband and I decided to relocate out of state with our son so we signed a 12 month lease. My husband then decided to return to our former state of residence and to never comeback here. So my son and I remained and he attended school here, has his doctor here and everything of that sort. This summer I sent my son to visit his dad but when the visitation time was up, he refused to return my son so I went to there and took my son and returned home so he could resume school. My ex-husband went to a judge and lied by saying I kidnapped my son and am about to flea the US, so an emergency ex parte custody was granted to him.

Given the domestic issues that you have have concerning your son, husband and the ex parte custody order against you, I suggest that you immediately consult with and retain a family law attorney who practices in the county and state where the ex parte order was issued against you.

By doing this, you will at least be able to get some legal guidance from such attorney as to the best way to possibly achieve custody of your son and overturn the ex parte order in effect.
