Crestview, FL asked in Child Custody for Florida

Q: My ex-girlfriend is attempting to get her Probation moved out of state while she is pregnant with my child.What can I do

She has refused a paternity test while Pregnant. I attempted to talk to the probation officer. He didn't really tell me anything besides he can't confirm or deny what she is trying to do. She has blocked my number and blocked me on all social media outlets. I found this out through her friends. She has a colored past and doesn't make the best decisions. 4 violations of probation because of her refusal to quit smoking Marijuana and doing other substances. Is there something I can file to keep her in state and to take a paternity test?

A: Your question leads to more questions. How far along is she? First, if she wants to move her probation to another state, the judge on her case must approve the move. If the judge is OK with it, there's nothing you can do to stop her from moving. 2nd, if she is still in the early terms of pregnancy, there are some fundamental rights that she posses. Even if you are the presumptive father, she is entitled to make certain decisions without your consent. Once the child is born, you can petition the court for a paternity test.
