My child’s father and I are no longer together (never married) and I want to know if I can legally move out of the state with my son. We don’t have any custody agreement through the courts but we do have a signed agreement with each other stating timesharing/ custody and whatnot.
Until the courts get involved, you can do what you wish. If you do move out of state, or even 50 miles away, the father of your child can file a paternity action and challenge your right to do so. But as long as there’s no court involved, you may do as you wish.
