I am a single mom of an 18-month-old son. I have never been married. His father's name is on the birth certificate, my my son lives solely with me. His father helps financially and sees him often. I am considering moving out of the state down the road, should a certain item pan out. Do I need to get my son's father's written consent before doing so? I don't want to do anything illegal. I just want to know what the law is if the custodial parent has never wed the child's father. I live in New Jersey.Single Mother of 11 month old twins...children reside with me..Father's name is on the birth certificate...no child support is being paid...no court order is in effect for support, visitation, etc. Can I move to Hawaii with my twins without his permission?
