Minor child are committed to the custody of mother,a father who is proven to neglect the child is not handed with the child custody. However there is no hard and fast rule and the paramount factor in decision is welfare of the child.

You can file a suit under Wards and Guardian Act in District or Family Court to fight for your sons custody.
