My brother and his wife live in Louisiana and want to move to Virginia where work is better. His wife has two children from her teen age years. Only one child has the father listed on the birth certificate. Daddy to this child has had nothing to do with the child. Can she move to Virginia and then file for the custody papers or does she and my brother have to give up job offers and move after they get something done in Louisiana? She is scared to death of rumors that she would be charged for kidnaping and doesn't know what to do.
