Ok, so you want to leave the baby's dad. Fine. You have a right to move out. But you don't have a right to up and move interstate without his permission. As I said, if you do that, he has the right to petition for the child to be returned and you may lose custody - it has happened.

Then go to court, get formal custody, visitation, and support orders in place. If your move to PA would adversely affect the child's access to his father, it will not be granted. You do NOT have the legal authority to move without these orders in place, and if it is determined that the move would be potentially detrimental to the child's relationship with his father, then you will need to make other adjustments.

I have done everything thing I can to work things out with the baby's dad even counseling it didn't work, n he told me that he doesn't care what I do, I'm not just going to up n move like that, he's mom buys everything he hadn't gotten anything for our baby.all he does is sit on his butt on the computer watching tv or playing games on the xbox, I do everything thing for my son

Well, first of all, relationships need work from both parties. Get counseling. You can't just decide that it 'isn't working' and that you want to move. You two are now parents, and that changes things.
You can't move with the child without the child's father's permission. He can't move with the child without your permission. You BOTH have the responsibility to this child of being a GOOD parent. You BOTH have the responsibility of being an adult. Perhaps you both need to get on the same page, realize that fun & games are over now that you're parents. Parenting takes primary responsibility.

So you live with the baby's dad? You can't up and move to another state without his approval - after all, he has a right to a relationship with the child. If you choose to just move, he could petition the courts to have the child returned. You will need to get his permission to do it.

My uncle is sick and about to pass on soon, and as for my son dad he's won't help when I ask him to all he does is sit on is butt watching tv and playing games all day long he hasn't bought anything for the baby. We really don't get along, I'm about to the point of giving up
