I have full physical custody and we have joint legal. There is no child support order. She is to pay 50% of medical. This order dates back to 2006 when he was 2. Now he's 9. We were never married, but I have been for over 7 years now. With regards to parenting time, we mutually adjusted the schedule to accommodate for schooling and our own families. He has been living with me this summer/fall. His mother wants to move away and start a new relationship with her boyfriend and her other son. We both mutually agree he is happier here and better off living with us. Can she waive her rights and completely sign him over to me?
