He can see him when ever he wants, but he never takes him. He doesnt have time for him. Which is alright with me. My son has become a caring loving person that likes to help others. My sons older sister said if he was with his dad he wouldnt be like that all.

Your hearsay is not necessarily going to be enough - you need more tangible evidence. You can certainly have him drug tested by the court if you have sufficient evidence. He is likely to still get visitation - you could push for supervised visitation. I definitely recommend you get a lawyer.

I have witnessed his drug use. That is one of the reasons I am not with him anymore. He has no money. My son gets a Social Security Check cause of him. He has called and texted me asking me how much the the check is every month. He has NOT called to ask if he can take my son for couple days since there is no school. His mind only thinks of money before anything else. He is going after the check cause his dad cut him off and he has no way else of getting money. The only time he see my son is maybe 5 times a year for maybe two hours at a time. He lives right by the school so its not like he is out of town. When he does take him I have to drive him to his place and furnish the food. You believe this, he makes more money then I do. He gets VA check and SSi. I work and get SScheck. I just dont know what to do.

It depends how good his lawyer is.
Get yourself a good one but you need proof of his drug use, not just hearsay.

He probably can't take custody from you, but I'd say he could get visitation of some sort.
