Good morning Tom,

I'm Doug, and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. What is it that I can help you understand?

2. Are you saying that your son wants to live in a state in which neither you nor his mother reside in?

3. Who would he be residing with?

4. Is he still in high school?

You say you can't get a response from the absentee mother.

Are you able to contact her?

Do you know where she is?

When is the last time that she saw your son?

How does your brother plan to register your son in school?

This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a private phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.
