Can I leave out of state while pregnant so that the father of the child has no rights to the child?
I want to leave and go back to my hometown but I’m pregnant and the father of the child keeps threatening to take me to court if I up and leave. He says that I’m not allowed to go anywhere. I’m four months and so depressed and tired of his drama. Does he still have rights to take me too court if I leave out of state? Can I leave and have nothing to worry about? I don’t want anything to do with this man.
At this point in time, he has no rights and you can leave. Once your child is born, he can pursue paternity and time with the child. That does not change if you move to a different state. However, there is the possibility that he will not file in the state that you move to.
