We were never married. Never established paternity. He however, stayed with his father majority of the time. Not sure what is on the birth certificate. We are from Washington state and moved to California 9 months ago. He never got a job and was living with his mother, he is 48 years old and hasn't had a job for 10 years. I have a job and a place for my son. He is not stable and I just found out he left to stay with his sister in Colorado this morning. I finally got a text message from him asking me to call him when I get a few min. I am not sure how to proceed without flying off the handle with him. Please tell me what I should do. This is just too much and I haven't slept for 24 hours since I wasnt able to reach him.
You should contact the police. Yu should make sure that they are aware paterity is not established, and no custody order is ion place. The unauthorized transportation of a child across state boundries can be a serious offence. Given that the paternity has not been established, and the birth certificate does not identify the individual as the father they may be able to assist in getting the child back. You may also be able to enlist the Colorado police's assistance in getting the child back (with the birth certificate).
