Your current husband's ex-wife has your son? I take that to mean you are step-mom and ex-wife is natural mother?

If they were divorced, there is an Order from a court with custody and visitation schedules. If one party is willfully disobeying the order, the aggrieved party can file a Petition for Contempt. If certain financial criteria is met, a party may receive indigent status to waive filing fees.

Contact legal services to see if anyone can help you or knows of a firm that does pro-bono work.
