If you do not have private counsel and a case has been opened against you by the state, counsel may be appointed. Consult with a lawyer on these issues before you do anything. You could make your situation worse instead of better if you leave the state with the child.

I do not practice law in KY, but based upon my experience where I am admitted, I would say you would cause yourself great trouble if you try to leave the state without permission of your child services agency and the court. In fact, if they were to find out your intentions, they may even try to get custody. Consult a local attorney familiar with this type of law. Perhaps you can get permission to move, but I doubt the case would be dropped, they may transfer the matter to the Ohio counterpart agency.
