Hello,

Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to answer your questions!

Can me and my 10 year old son legally separate from his mother?
Yes

Provided there is not a court order or a pending court proceeding in effect regarding your son, you and your son may move away from the mother.

This means that without a court order regarding your son, both parents 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.

I would be glad to respond to any follow-up questions that you may have.

thanks for that info. Do i need to contact a family lawyer and fill out paperwork to do this? There is no court filings as we are married and living in the same house at this point
Expert:  FiveStarLaw replied 1 year ago.

No it is not necessary to take any legal action before moving out. After you move out, you will want to retain counsel – while your son is in your custody –to petition the court for parenting plan

thanks for the info. I have a question now..i just walked by and saw her watching porn on the computer with my son 10 feet away in the bath. Can i just serve her and have her removed

You can file for divorce and ask the court for sole occupancy of the marital residence.

I hope this helps

We had discussed that you can file for divorce and ask the court for sole occupancy of the marital residence. Have you done so?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I was looking for the correct separation forms online but had problems at work so it was on hold
