"Other than child support" may be a big hole. In what type of proceeding was child support ordered. Usually child support is ordered and one person gets custody and the other pays support, unless there is a joint custody order. If she has custody then you need to file a motion seeking custody of him, whoever he is.
You definitely need to hire an attorney and obtain a Court Order for custody. Depending upon your location, I might be able to help you myself. Feel free to call for a free telephone consultation.
