where one parent wants to move out of the city where the other parent lives, the best course of action is usually to get a custody/move away order from the court. The paperwork for this can be obtained from your local courthouse. Also, if the father is working and you are not, you should seriously consider filing for a child support order as well.
Custody is not actually decided based on the parent's income; there are plenty of parents who are unemployed who have fully custody; do not let that prevent you from doing what is best for you and your son. Best of luck.
