I have taken a job in another state, and I am supposed to begin work on Feb. 10. My estranged husband, who is NOT the father of the child born during our marriage, told me today that he filed something in Wake County that keeps me from leaving the state with my child. He says that he was told by “Legal Aid” that since he was there when the child, was born, is listed as father on the birth certificate and was the “father figure” for about a year that he does have legal rights to the child and can stop me from leaving the state with the child.
I was told in this forum that since he is not the natural father, he has no rights to the child and therefore cannot pull any crap like this. Which scenario is true and what are my options?
