Confused How do I find out who legally has custody of my kids?

How do I find out who legally has custody of my kids? I was young when I they were born and it has been about 7 years. I reside in Washington state and they live in Alaska. I have been told they live with their grandparents and have since they were little for some time now. But their mom lives in another city other than they do up in alaska. When I was young their grandparents decided they did not like me. But how do I find out who legally has custody of my kids, where are they?

Try looking into court records in all states/cities where everyone has lived.

IF there was ever any legal custody or guardianship granted by court order, it will be available as a pubic record.

Well I just found out via my sister that my son's grandparents have full custody of both my boys and that they have since the boys were little. That their mom took off on some drug binge and left them. How do I validate this claim? That is how do I look up in public court records to see if they do have full legal custody of my boys and for how long they have had it? I have been paying child support for years now! If she is not even the legal gaurdian of my boys how can she claim them and get money for it? It sounds to me that she has been lying to get money for her drugs again. My sister lives in the same town they do and says that the grandparents have been taking care of them since they were little and that they have full custody.

The local court should have that order; ask the clerk to do a search. A modest fee may be involved or a local lawyer could do it.
