I don't know if this is the right place to ask this so if not I'd appreciate any references.
I am 5 months pregnant, living in FL, and my husband and I are likely getting a divorce despite our efforts in counseling, small groups, etc.
I do not think being a single, working mother is for me but at the same time I refuse to give my child to my husband. So hence, I am thinking about going the route of adoption.
My first question is if I can pursue adoption for my child without my husband's consent? What if I don't list a father on the birth certificate - would that help my case?
My second question is if I'm allowed to leave the state. I'd like to move to Colorado but don't know if I'm allowed to. I'm thinking that if I move while I'm still pregnant its okay but if I wait until the baby is born then I'm worried I won't be able to go.View Thread
