Hi. I'm new to this website but I read posts and blogs all of the time!
I am a single mother of a BEAUTIFUL 18 month old boy! His father and I didn't establish paternity, but the father is on birth certificate (child has my last name). The father's family lives 2 hours away and never come visit. The father wants to take him out of town with out me to visit family overnight. My son has never had overnight visits yet and father has a bad habit of texting and driving (has gotten in wrecks because of it). Does he have the right to take him out of town with out my permission? Also, how should the overnight visits start? He's never slept away from home before. His father is active in his life. Any time he wants to see his son, I give him permission, unless plans have already been made. I dont want him on the road with my son because I don't trust him and it's too far if something were to happen. Please help! Thank you!
