Do I have the right to know where my son’s father takes him on his weekends or who watches him while he is at work?

We were never married; no custody order in place currently. My ex does not bring him to normal daycare and he will not tell me where he lives or where they stay on the weekends. He says he is an “ex” gang member and shows up only on weekends when he wants to. I don’t think he is mentally fit to take care of him and he has bad anger issues.

So I think that it is time that you go to court to establish custody and visitation issues between you and your son's father.  The issue of his whereabouts should be brought up before the Judge and Iam fairly certain - like 99% - that the court will indeed order him to advise you as to the whereabouts of your son when he is with him.  If you feel that he is not a fit parent then that is an issue that you need to discuss with your attorney as well.  Then maybe you would prefer that your son have supervised visitation and no over nights.  Check out your options.  Good Luck.
