I live in Washington State and I am getting a divorce. We have one child, 3yrs old, and he insists he will get full custody.
However the reason for me wanting to move out of state is I married the wrong person. It was just a mistake to marry him and I want to correct it. The man I want to marry and who wants to marry me is in California. How do I restart my life there if my husband will not agree that I am able to leave the state?
I just posted a question about moving to California from Washington State. I'm new and I don't think my question came out right due to the answer I received. I am not about to leave my 3 year old. The point of saying my husband wants full custody is because he is very stubborn. I could reside where I am and he would still make things very difficult. I don't want to pretend to be happy in our marriage and its not good for our child. We argue a lot and regardless if I move out of state, I will still be getting a divorce. I would rather we be happy apaprt for our child than miserable together. If I were to move out of state before we get divorced... well I heard that was considered kidnapping due to taking the child away from the other parent without permission. Is that true? Also again, if I wanted to start over in a new state and get married to someone else, am I allowed to do that? I mean I should be, but I do also know how important it is for both parents to be part of our child's life.
