Question: Can I move out of state with my son?? Answer: You need permission from the court to take your child with you if you plan to move to another state. Any attorney in your area who practices family law should be able to help you with the process. It is possible for the father of the child to agree, but his agreement must still be memorialized in a court order. Don't try doing this yourself, and don't move out of state without the court's permission. Get an attorney to help you jump through the necessary hoops.
