After paternity is established and a custody order issued, you might be able to obtain visitation rights in lieu of your son during the course of his incarceration. Based only on the facts in your brief message, legal custody is not in the cards for you at this time. Consult local counsel.

What rights do I have and what would I have to do to gain legal custody of child?
Absent a court order, grandparents have no legal rights whatsoever regarding their grandchildren. Depending on the laws of your unidentified state, you probably have standing to petition for a visitiation order. However, you would need to establish that you are, in fact, the child's grandmother or grandfather, which means your son's paternity would have to be established (not clear why you're assuming your son is the father). Custody is out of the question unless the local child protective services authority were to remove the child from his current home and choose to place him with you.
