Answered on Dec 3, 2016

You really need to retain a matrimonial attorney to file the Emancipation motion for you and seek retroactive modification of child support. This is not something to try on your own. To properly answer your questions and address your concerns, the best way to handle this is by retaining an experienced matrimonial attorney. You need the best attorneys you can afford, do not let geographic considerations be a factor in your choice of an attorney. Good luck.

Q: Can my son's father take him without my knowledge and leave state?

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Pennsylvania on
Answered on Dec 3, 2016

Of course he can. He is just as much entitled to custody as you are at this stage of the game. That's the problem with not having court ordered custody to protect yourself and your kid. Conversely, you don't have to let him have custody either. Either of you can take the child as both of you have equal status. If you are truly concerned about him taking your child and leaving you should file for a custody order so that can't happen.
