My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Oregon
I've been w/ my sons father since 1998. We were never married & I'm unsure if "common-law" even exists anymore or holds any legal bind to our situation. We've been split up for a couple years now but continued to live together. We've lived in Oregon about 3 years now, formally from California.
My situation is this. I want to move to Virginia but my sons father tells me that he refuses to let me leave w/ our son. Do I need his permission to leave w/ our child? We don't have any kind of formal/legal arrangement whatsoever. I don't intend on hiding our whereabouts. I just want to know if it would be breaking the law to cross state lines (to permanently move) w/o his permission. Thanks in advance.
