Q: Can my girlfriend leave with my son to another state without my consent
A: An answer can often be found by reviewing the child custody orders you have in place. What does it say about trips out of state? What does it say moving away?
If you do not have child custody orders already in place and you believe that she is relocating to another state, then you need to consult with an attorney right away, before she moves out of the state.
If you do not have the means to afford full representation by an attorney, there are some attorneys who will help you represent yourself or go to court appearances for you, depending on your needs.
