Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. At this point, absent a court order, the mother has every legal right to take the child and leave your home and relocate and live else where What you have been doing for her and the child over all these years is outstanding but it would not give you a right, in the eyes of the law, to just prevent/stop her from leaving. The reason why I say this is because there is a fundamental right for the parent/mother to make these choices in regard to her child. Now, if you wanted to, you could always file a motion/petition with the court, seeking to obtain visitation
or go so far as custody, if it is in the best interest of the child
. You would need to show that the child would be put at risk or harm and can not be cared for if left with the mother and placed in a situation to live with the boyfriend. While she may not be fully ready for parenting and thinking about herself over the child, that alone may not be enough for the court to grant you relief, unless you can show a harm caused to the child, which should result in her losing custody. At this point, your best option may be to seek court ordered visitation, if she is not going to allow it or work with you for you to see Cash.
