  • Can i take my son if i want to leave my wife?

    we just dont get along anymore....its got to where i cant stand to be around her..

    Amber’s Answer

    You and your wife have equal rights to the child if this is a child of the marriage. The problem with going to another state is that you will lose jurisdiction. For example, in Ohio you have to be a resident of the State of Ohio for at least 6 months and of the county you file in for at least 90 days. I don't know how long you would have to reside in Kentucky to establish jurisdiction as I am not licensed there. If your child is of school age this becomes more problematic as well as the court may not look kindly on you removing the child from school. Why do you want to go to Kentucky? How will this affect your wife's ability to also parent your child? These are large considerations which you should weigh carefully before leaving the State just because you want to.

    You will be fine. Even if you would have been convicted of a petty theft, this offense does not disqualify you in the State of Ohio from being a registered nurse. Good luck!

    Amber’s Answer

    It would seem to me that if you tell the child support enforcement agency that you know who the father is and provide them with his name and contact information that they will then contact him to arrange DNA swabbing at no cost to you. I do not believe that you need an attorney to accomplish this. DNA testing is very expensive if done through a private firm.
