I am currently living in NSW, with my 2 year old. I have always been primary carer (biological father only met my son and began a relationship with him a few months ago) and after attempting to form a relationship with the biological father myself it has become clear that things will not work out between us. He is verbally abusive to both myself and my son, gets angry at him and throws things at us out of anger ( domestic violence). He has never had my son in his care for more than a few overnight visits (with myself present). I have no family here, as they all live in Victoria, and at the moment I'm struggling emotionally and financially being so far from them. There are no job or education prospects here nor are there any support networks (family/friends) here for me. Biological father has never paid child support and has only contributed to our son by buying him a few gifts every now and again over the last few months that he has known him. My mother, of whom my son is very close with, lives in Victoria and has expressed that we would be able to live with her and that she would be able to help support us when needed. Biological father will not allow me to relocate and has violent bursts at the mention of the idea. I do not feel comfortable speaking to him about it further and would like to know if there is any way under family law that I can relocate without him forcing us to return? Thanks in advance.
