Contact a Family Law attorney. Preferably the one who handled the original custody agreement. He/she will tell you if you have a valid case. As difficult as it may be to believe, there are some states that would not grant sole custody even under those circumstances,go figure! Although if he has been convicted (not just charged) of a felony you probably have just cause.

No, minors have no legal "standing" in their own custody matters. Their input is sometimes asked and listened to, but the court is the final decision-maker.
