I want to move out of state with my son, from Virginia to Florida. All my family is up here, including my son's father and his parents. His dad sees him approx. 1-2 month, sometimes he'll go 6+ weeks without so much as a phone call. His dad has talked about moving out of state for the last 8 months or so, saying it's going to happen at any moment, and that it could be Florida or North Carolina, etc. etc. Now apparently it might not happen. I get child support through Division of Child Support Enforcement. My questions are 1. What do I need to do court-wise to be able to move 2. Do you have any advice on how to break this idea softly to the dad who barely sees his son? 3. How do I get my parents to be okay with this possible move? I'm not moving malciously. I don't want to hurt people although I know they are going to be upset at me "taking their grandchild away" but really it's such an amazing opportunity to live somewhere else, and people move all the time so why should I be stuck in this area where I'm so unhappy? I'd of course make sure my son visited as often as possible, and I'd have a guest room so they could visit whenever they wanted too. I'm not trying to prevent anyone from seeing each other, I just really want to move from this area. Suggestions? Advice?
