I don't know the details but honey, it sounds like you need a really good family law attorney. Or any family law attorney for that matter. What you have is a pure case of discrimination. With your credentials or even without them, and with a firm religious belief, (let's just say), you are entitled to an unbiased fair chance at custody of your son. You are at least entitled to a second opinion.
Good luck!
