Moving out of state with my 4 year old!

Ive wanted to move from CT my whole life. It's expensive and I never felt like it was home. My son just turned 4 and I feel like it's time I branch off since he's little. All my family is here and I'm really close to my mom and sister which I go to see every week due to my son saying he wants to see them. When I get there after a few hours we start arguing about dumb stuff but I keep going back for my son. My mom use to help me but with all the tension I don't look for her help anymore. His dads around about twice a month and only because his mom takes our son if I let her. She acts like I had a kid with her, If I don't answer her phone called for like a week she will drive to my moms when she sees my car and my mom will let her see him. There's stories for days but long story short she's crazy and my mom uses the excuse I wouldn't want anyone taking my grandchildren away for afew weeks. I told her not every grandparent sees the kids weekly it's weird and annoying. Anywho I want to move to VA or Miami I have a few family members out there willing to help as much as they can but I don't know if it's a good idea. I don't want my son hating me for taking him from everyone he knows. I feel helpless my mom and his grandma don't respect what I say or my rules like I'm a kid. I'm very overprotective of my son and feel they don't need to act like parents to him. I'm a dental assistant and know I can find a job it's just I'm worried about am I going to find an affordable after school program for a chill in kindergarten that will keep him till I get out. It's a lot to think about and I have no one to talk to any advice????

Do you have any court orders about custody and visitation with your son's Father?
The main person you need to worry about in all this is him. He could even get his Mother in his ear and push for more visitation and also prevent you from moving.
All rest of what you have written doesn't really matter as far as the courts are concerned but you need to have his Father's approval.
