My ex and I have never been married and he is abusive. Does he have any legal rights to the baby? Am I allowed to move where ever I want?
Unless he has gone through the court process called "legitimation," he doesn't have any established legal rights to the child, though he does have the obligation to provide financial support (our system isn't perfect).
I use the term "established legal rights" because he has potential legal rights, if he is the biological father. He would need to file a legal action to legitimate the child through the court. The judges in Gwinnett almost always seem to require a DNA test to prove paternity in such cases. Once he is established as the dad, the Court will usually award visitation, joint legal custody (decision making), etc.
If he his the bio-dad, there is little you could do to STOP a legitimation action, but if you had substantial proof of the abuse, you can possibly prevent joint legal custody, visitation, etc.
Yes, you can move wherever you want, assuming there are no other unrelated factors preventing you from doing so.See question
Son legitamized but wants to come with dad because of physical and emotional abuse. But hes seven
The son is not old enough to make a binding decision to come live with you, BUT you can certainly file for a modification of custody based upon what's in the best interests of the child.

Well, you certainly have a situation on your hands. Basically, you have no legal rights to the child until you do a legitimation, which is having the Court officially designate you as the legal father of the child. As she is now out of state, it would most likely be more practical to initiate this legal action in the state where the child resides.
You would be foolish to try to represent yourself in this matter. There are too many potential pitfalls. Hire an attorney. I'm re-categorizing the question into Family Law.See question
Sister/Mother name on deed. Both are now deceased w/o a will.
Tough scenario, but start with getting the terminology correct: It's "quitclaim."
Yes, someone can convey by deed any portion or all of their interest in a property. A quitclaim deed is a deed of conveyance without any kind of warranty of title.
You have unstated questions/issues in your short post. If there are two deceased people on title, you may have to probate at least one, possibly two estates.... Or, you could address all issues at once with a Quiet Title Action.
You will most likely require legal assistance - it sounds like you probably need it.See question
Hello: My child’s mother has moved from the state of Georgia to the State of Florida. I have a child support order that was issued in the state of Georgia and I still reside in Gwinnett County, Georgia. My financial circumstances have changed a...
You should file in the County which issued the current child support order. The other side may seek to have the case transferred to the jurisdiction where the child is located, though, so be prepared for that.
This is not the kind of case you want to handle without legal assistance. Too many opportunities for error.See question

No. An uncontested divorce requires both signatures. If you know where he is, a "one signature" divorce, as you call it, would require you to commit perjury.See question
My wife and I are thinking about canceling our divorce but she's afraid I haven't changed. Can we make a contract stating if I haven't changed we will get a divorce and I'll pay everything and give her custody of the kids if I put specific things ...
In theory, yes.
On a practical level, what your talking about is so subjective as to be completely unenforceable, How about you just focus on loving each other and not about how much you play video games? marraiages aren't made or broken on measurements.See question

Quite often, the closing attorney will prepare this deed and record it along with the docs associated with the sale. I ypically charged $75 for the prep/recording of such a deed. Others will vary.See question
Can my son own title to my house and can he sell it later? If we both own the house how is the money divided when sold? How old does he have to be to sell the house?
You could, but it's a BAD idea. He couldn't sell it or even coney his interest back to you until he's 18.... at least not without judicial intervention.See question

Most, if not all, of our Gwinnett County judges will not force a 16 year to visit the non-custodial parent against their will.See question
