How do I get custody of my children again?

Question Detail

Two years ago I was at my now ex’s house with my two children when a raid took place for marijuana. I was clueless to the fact that he was growing marijuana in the garage. CPS was called and kids were taken. It has been a hopeless battle for me with false hope after me doing everything and more than was told to do I went to a very strict four days a week drug program, was drug tested three times a week, rehab, eventually rented my own apartment. I jumped through all the hoops. The father was asked to attend parenting classes and was granted full physical custody. We both share joint custody and I see my son four days out of the month and he controls everything and threatens that he doesn’t have to let me see him at all. I have not had a fair chance at all. I need help, even my criminal charges are the same as what he was charged with and I was just a guest that stayed the night at his residence.

 Mike’s Answer:

If you have completed your rehabilitation program, are currently sober and have been keeping up with your court ordered visitation time, you will want to file a motion to modify the current custody and visitation order. Given the complexities of your case, it would probably be in your best interest to consult with an attorney.
