I need a list of mothers rights states.....i'm in a situation that is getting out of control. My daughters dad and me aren't together(as you all know) and yesterday something happend that left me afraid because he's constantly telling me he's gonna take our two year old daughter braelyn. i'm afraid he may turn violent if not given his way. I don't want him taking my child nor do I want him hitting me in front of her.

He's already controlling(He's married btw for those of you who missed it in my past posts) and is verbally abusive twards me.

I want to move out of state and start over with my daughter, yet I want to ensure i'm heard and not threatend or made to look like a criminal when i've done nothing wrong. Everything he does he turns around on me and makes it seem like I did it to him.

I want to move to a state where i'm given my proper rights to my child.

Please help me

If you already have a co you must follow it or be in contempt which will cause you more problems. So if you move without his consent that would be bad. You need to retain a good lawyer and take him back to court.

The only advice I have for you is to keep records of everything that can be seen as abuse like threats, or actions, or harassing emails or phone calls, this will go a long way to getting an order of protection as well as limiting his parental rights. I'm not sure about the laws in my state as I had an amicable split from my ex and we worked out everything outside the court system. And I live in NYC so it's pretty expensive to live here and hard to find employment at the moment. I think you just have to be as careful as possible to avoid his actions, and follow the law as much as possible if you want to move file with the court and if you have an attorney use him.

Is he on the birth certificate? Do you have custody agreement? You may not be able to move without his permission. I know in my divorce papers, our custody says I can only move 100 miles from his house without his permission. You need to check on this so you aren't held in contempt.
