I think what you're saying is that there is no court order in place. If that is the case, then neither parent has legal custody, so who ever has the children then has custody. So, if the children were to return to the mothers care, or if the mother were to obtain the children she would then have custody. This is the case in North Carolina. I can't speak to other states. However, I would like to issue a warning. It is in the best interest of the children for the parents to come to an agreement about the custody of the children. Parents who are separated should still work together to ensure the well-being a safety of their children. If the mother is a drug user, has a violent boyfriend, or anything else that might put children at risk, then be warned that if the mother does remove the children from the father unwillingly - it is likely that he will make a report to Child Protective Services. If CPS finds out that the mother is an unsafe caregiver, it is likely the department will place the children with the father and give him full custody - with a court order.

Not necessarily. Unless there is a restraining order in place barring the father from the children, he still has parental rights. If there is an order barring the step mother from the children, then the father still has visitation, but he cannot have them around his wife, nor can he speak about her to the children, or even so much as sign her name on a birthday card for the children.

Consider that possibly the son feels he has a valid reason for not interacting with his father, and if possible can the father do anything to rectify that situation. If you feel or know that the father did not cause the rift, accept that adult children are adults, and that adults can choose to speak to whomever they wish. Adult children are also still your children and go through phases all their lives. Give him time and he may come around.
