I live in FL with my boyfriend of 7 years. We have 2 children

Resolved Question:

I live in FL with my boyfriend of 7 years. We have 2 children together ages 3 and 5. I want to move to NC, but I am afraid to move the children out of state. What are my rights? Do I have any rights to our joint personal belongings. He claims everything is his, but I have been working for four years and he has been unemployed for a lot of that time.

So long as there is no case pending or child custody order in place, either parent may lawfully move their children anywhere they wish.

The same is basically true with jointly held accounts and personal effects. You both have an equal possessory right and are free to take them.
