I am a single mother of my only son, his father and I were never married. We broke up 6 months after my son was born. There is no custody order however he does pay child support. I am wanting to move back to Texas to be near my mother and I cant find any information regarding the legality of the move. Any advice would greatly be appreciated!
If you do not have the permission of him, and/or the court, he can file a, injunction, as I advise fathers to do, to prevent the move until a full custody order is established with long distance visitation orders.
All Children Deserve Two Parents
Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears has noted, children born to unmarried women and to those in cohabiting relationships “must often overcome increased risks of poverty, education failure, child abuse, delinquency, emotional distress and mental illness.”…….the lack of a father’s guidance in children’s lives is a major cause of their suffering. “Marriage is the best child welfare, crime prevention, anti-poverty program we have,”
