Birth of baby & moving out of state


#1

I moved to NC from California a year ago because I met a man. I am now pregnant. The baby will be born in Georgia because of insurance reasons but we live in NC. I am Not married. All my family lives in California. I would Like to know if the relationship doesn’t work with the baby’s father Am I stuck in NC or am i able to take the baby & move back to California where my family is there to help?
The father will definitely be an involved parent & would never keep the baby from him but would need the hep from my family survive.

You can move back to California after the baby is born, but it would be wise to have a custody order in place first. If you were to move out of state with the child without a custody order, then the father could file an emergency ex-parte custody action against you and be granted emergency custody of the child due to you attempting to leave the state.

The father will be involved and want 50/50 custody so how could a custody order work in that situation.
How do you go about getting a custody order

The further two parents live apart the more difficult it is to have a 50/50 custody schedule. In cases where the parents live states apart, one parent typically has primary custody during the school year and the other parent will have significant visitation time during summer and holidays/breaks from school.

To get a custody order one parent must file a child custody lawsuit against the other parent.
