Can I moves back to MD from VA with my son without any legal problems. I moved to VA and stayed because of my boyfriend. I have no other support system in VA and I will probably have to change jobs since I won't be able to afford to rent just on my salary. What do I need to do to work child issues out legally with my boyfriend?

Since there has been no court involvement, you may move back to Maryland with your child.

Without a court order concerning the child, both the mother and the father have equal rights. The parent that the child is with has the right to relocate or travel with his child as he sees fit and to deny visitation to the other parent.

Once you have relocated to Maryland, you will want to establish a parenting plan with the court.Of course, because of the nuanced details of the matter, I suggest that you retain a local attorney.
