I won my cps case in June of this year and my son's father took him and won't let me see him or give him back to me. I've read allot of your comments about what to do if the father is on the birth certificate but what do you do when he isn't on the birth certificate and you have cps paperwork stating that you are the custodial parent. Do I still need to put child support on him I haven't seen my son in 3 weeks now and I miss him allot and I really don't have any help on figuring this thing out alone. Is there any advice on who to talk to now and do you have any names or numbers if so please email them to me or share online with me. I'm fresh out of luck on what to do. The child support agency told me that I could not put child support on the father because I did not have him with me. Wow! this is harder than I thought it would be. Please help me take the necessary steps to getting things done.

If you've not established custody/visitation/support in court, then of course you aren't going to get him back soon.

Get an attorney, get a court date set, get custody, visitation, and support outlined.

So you don't have custody if you never went to court to get it established. Walk into your local family court and ask the clerk what paperwork you need to fill out in order to establish custody for your son. If you don't go to court you aren't going to get him back because he has just as much right to his son as you do. And custody and child supper are two different things in court.

Who has custody of your son, is it you and your ex took him? Or did he get temp custody because of a case against you, and you think he should pay you support despite not having custody. I'm very confused.

I also wanted to know that if he can get the baby's birth certificate if he isn't the custodial parent or if he isn't on the birth certificate because he is trying to get the ss card and the birth certificate.

Ok no he's not on the birth certificate and we called the police and cps and they told us that we needed and court order to prove that I'm his mom. I got the paper work from cps and they still told me that it wasn't anything that they can do so I've been told to take him to court but I don't want to put child support on him i just want my son back and don't know what to do to get to the next step like getting a lawyer I cant afford one. So how would i file for custody? He is selling drugs and other issues going on right in front of the police and cps and they still say they could not remove my son this is sad. I have custody of my son but we never went to court to get custody because I don't want him on the birth certificate so I'm trying to figure out how to do this without going to court.

Him being on the birth certificate doesn't matter, he's the father. If you have custody and he don't return your child call the police to find out what you need to do. However if custody hasn't been established in court you are going to have to file for custody in court because the police won't interfere.

Yes I have custody and he isn't on the birth certificate. I had a case opened by him his baby momma and his mother cps took my child and they just closed the case because they didn't have anything on me. But they went to court and the grandma gave the baby to the dad and now he won't let me see him or speak with him.
