Can I move out of stateif I’m8 months pregnant?

I’m pregnant and want nothing from the child’s father not even child support. I will not be collecting state aid of any kind because my income is high and I do not need it. I current live in Michigan and we were never married. I wanted to know what my rights are as he threatened when we broke up that he will play dirty. I’m not trying to hide this child from him but this move would be better for my job and was already in the plans before becoming pregnant.

If you arenot married then he has no control over you or the baby until the baby is born, paternity is established and a visitaition and custody order is in place.  Additionally, if the baby were born and you were not married at the tie you would be considered the legal guardian again, until there is an order establishing custody and visitation.  I would make the move now.  He has no legal rights yet.  And if you are moving for a better life for you and the baby then do so.  But do not frown on the support. He will be granted rights and you should take it for the baby. Put it in a college fund.  Good luck.
