You need to consult with an attorney who specializes in custody issues. She/he must review your situation and then explain your options under the laws in your jurisdiction.

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.

Minors from newborn to age 18 are considered in custody disputes in court. Once a "minor" has turned 18, he or she is legally considered an adult, and therefore no longer is considered a "minor."

It is illegal for minors to smoke and also illegal to sell tobacco products to minors.

Question is unclear, or some facts are missing . Minors do not "give" their parents grants of temporary custody. Only the court can award custody.

The 'minor' has no say in the matter.
