passport issue child of binational unmarried couple

Hi, I needed some advice and guidance on my son's legal rights and entitlements in accordance with the new family law. My ex.partner and I had a child together, the child was recognized at the Swiss consulate in Dubai and received the Swiss nationality. My ex.partner and I drafted a family agreement which gave me the full custody of the child and spelled out the visitation schedule. The custody agreement was done at the local authorities in Dubai, I translated it and sent to the Swiss consulate requesting they change their records to reflect that I have the full custody and legal guardianship of the child but didn't get any cooperation from them. I am not Swiss, Jordanian, I felt like I was dismissed based on the fact that I am Arab.The last officer I spoke to was very rude and dismissive. The father has been trying to get my son's passport as a prelude for taking my son out of the country without my permission. The father got a court junction from the local Islamic courts in Dubai to obtain the passport. I wrote to the Swiss Ambassador this morning, but I am not hopeful about getting any responses. I've been searching the net trying to find answers on how the new law treats the passport situation, does the new Swiss family law give the custody of the passport to the parent that has the custody of the child? where does my son's rights stand as a child of a binational unmarried separated couple?
Appreciate your input and thoughts!
