My son's father used alcohol and drugs on a pretty regular basis; in and out of treatment centers - only to say he does not "have a problem" & things between us became very bad. Our son will be 3 in October. We have had no intimate relations in well over a year and a half we are 100% no longer a couple. He moved out today. My son will be looking for him - he will have questions - any advice as to how I share with him that dad lives somewhere else? Please note that his dad does not live in the local area he's out of the city so he will not be able to see him on a regular basis. Meanwhile I have been offered a job way out of state in the Midwest all thoughts feedback suggestions are all welcome thanks moms

1) Make sure you have support and custody orders established from the get go.

You don't have the right to make the decision to move out of the area with the child, because that will be detrimental to his relationship with his father, and the child HAS THE RIGHT to that relationship.
You can request either supervised visitation, or something along those lines, but ONLY if you have solid proof that the man may endanger your child.
Make sure you do everything by the legal route.

I feel you 100% - I can tell you that all the date of birth certificate needed to be signed he was somewhere drunk with the family ca . that was the day I had to catch the taxi cab up to the hospital so I could breastfeed our son who was in the NICU. so from a relationship perspective I understand 100% #legally his name is not on the birth certificate
