My son Charles was taken by his father on Feb. 6th and his father has not returned him. He asked me could he take him to school that day but he never took him. My son has not been in school since the 5th of Feb. I have tried to get all kinds of help but the police and the courts said we both have custody. But he is not even taking him to school i dont no what to do.

Ok, but your court orders aren't specific enough about the custody. You need to speak to a lawyer about that.

You have to file for custody. Go and see a lawyer. If your court orders do not have custody and visitation spelled out specifically, then your son's father is doing nothing illegal.

Have you been in contact with your child's father at all? Do you know where he is?

Depending on where you live, you could call Child Protection because non attendance at school for this period of time without decent reason can be considered neglect. I know that where I live, the Education Department requires certain attendance levels at school.
