I'm living in North Dakota with my boyfriend and newborn
I'm living in North Dakota with my boyfriend and newborn baby. I'm in an abusive relationship and want to move with my baby to Utah to be close to family. There is no court order for custody whatsoever pertaining to my boyfriend. Although he is listed on the birth certificate. Am I allowed to leave the state with my child and move to another state? Do I have to have his permission? He's abusive and a drug addict and we need to get away from him. But I don't want there to be problems should I choose to move out of state. I've not filed a child support claim against him yet. And he supports me and my baby financially. I just want to make sure I'm doing what's legally ok.
I was in a verbally abusive relationship that I ended after
I was in a verbally abusive relationship that I ended after it became physical in front of our son. We also have a daughter. 2 and three years old. I have had to place two restraining orders on him since we split. I allowed visitation rights for our children's sake. He told me in good faith that he would pay me child support but has never given me a dime. Now he is the threatening to sue me for defamation if i ever files for support. This came up because he recently told me he didn't want to see the children anymore. Wants me moving out of town and is making lies about my sitter so she quit and I can't work. If I loose my job I loose my housing also. I sadly still love this man therefore have never told lies but I tell the truth to my boss as to why I can't come to work. After saying he didn't want to see children he showed up on my doorstep (no protective order currently in place) and wanted to see the kids and take them across the street to see grandma. I left him because the children were so excited to see him. We have nothing in writing for child custody. I have avoided it and have just tried to work with him because I can't afford a lawyer. His family has lots of money, he just built a home with cash and I'm scared that if I go for custody involving the court that his money can make me loose my children. He is a compulsive liar even when in trial for protective orders and will get the best lawyer there is. He has a criminal record with a few duis, driving without licenses, and other minor things. What steps do you think I should be taking to end him trying to control me still and putting an end to him wanting kids only when it is convenient for him with the worry of him sueing me for whatever he may make up. I'm not too worried about defamation because I have never told a lie. We live in a small village where word gets around fast. I have no family here, just me and my children. I don't want to move because he doesn't want me here. I made this my home and don't want to take the children out of his life completely.
I have been in an abusive relationship years. I told my ex
I have been in an abusive relationship for 17 years. I told my ex that I wanted him to move out. I got an eviction notice for him last year, and he kept me up until 2 am until I told him that I would drop it. Things have been getting worse, and we have 3 children together. The house is solely in my name, and he pays nothing but groceries. How can I get him out quickly and legally?
I have a 5 month old daughter with a man who is verbally
I have a 5 month old daughter with a man who is verbally abusive and argumentative. I have tried different measures to peacefully co-parent but he causes me great emotional stress and anxiety whenever we have to interact. I want my daughter to have a relationship with her father but do not like the high-conflict environment and bullying he attempts. We have NOT established legal paternity. He lives in Jacksonville, FL and I live in Orlando, FL - 141 miles apart. I feel he harasses and torments me just because. What are the appropriate steps I should take (and the order) to end up with a "parallel" parenting plan that involves no contact from him except for emergencies?

Greetings, I have a female family member who is in an abusive relationship. She recently had to call the police on the boyfriend and move out of the apartment. The boyfriend's family members are threatening to take the baby because they don't feel she'scapable of caring for her on her own. I know this isn't as easy as they are making it because I'm sure family services would have to get involved first if it came to questionable care issues. But for her peace of mind I would like to know the legal groundsit would take for them to pull something like that off like that. Thank you
