My cousin (Lake Tahoe, Ca.)is involved with a man that is very abusive and controlling. She has called the P.D. out on numerous occasions due to violence. Nothing is ever filed against hime due to his contacts with the police. She wants to move to So. Ca and take her 2 1/2 year old son with her. She has a very extended family here and the child loves being here with all of us.Can she move here and then start the custody and support battle? Considering that they are not married what steps does she need to take? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
