i have a 5 months old son. my partner, Bryan and I broke up when the baby was born- never married. We are now going through a custody battle. Bryan makes this process very difficult and emotional; a very malicious and ugly kind. i hear that Washington State, they're providing a great law/advocacy services for single moms regarding to the situation like this. Am I allowed to get up and move there with my son during this custody process? will I be violating something like the parenting rights or our temporary visitation agreement? B***** *****ves in Maryland and I currently live in Rhode Island. We have this temporary visitation agreement until the trial.But Bryan is constantly trying to find a way to take him away from me by testing my milk to see if there were some alcohol in it and collecting all of my "unfit" pictures online that he'll think that they'll help him winning the sole custody and so on and on. Will I be arrested during my stay in Washington state if I moved there? Do i need to ask anyone a permission? if yes, what happened to my 1st amendment right?
