Arrangements / court - please help
Firstly, we cannot predict what a court may say regarding whether your PSO will be grated against the partner of your ex. This will be up to the court to decide on the basis of the Cafcass Report, please see link If your son is already living with your ex and she is considered the primary carer, it is highly unlikely the court would remove your son from her care and hand him over to you. Stability and consistency are considered most important in a child's life and unless it is absolutely necessary the court will not change residency. If you have Parental Responsibility, take your son without consent (please see link, and attempt to move away with him, there is every likelihood the courts will rule that you bring your child home and hand him back to the resident parent. Taking your child without consent can backfire and it could make access even more difficult, so it is never a good idea. If you are at college, then any child maintenance you pay will be at your discretion, if you are not earning an income it is unlikely you will have to pay more than flat rate, but this will not affect any rights to see your son. The positives are that you have previously been considered the primary carer (when you had your son for four months) and your ex came and took him. Hopefully, Cafcass and the court will empathise with your situation here. What you must remember, is that the courts are not interested in you or your ex, or her boyfriend's spats. What they are interested is what it thinks is in the best interests of your child and they will want to see that you too are thinking along these lines and not trying to gain one-upmanship over your ex. If agreements can be reached amicably, then this is the best way forward. If you can't the courts will make the decision on your behalf, which is likely to be access rather than custody. I hope this helps.
