Steve,

If possible, don't move yet! Get a place on your own and request an emergency hearing. You need to get custody and visitation settled before you move! If you move to CA, it will not look good to a judge. At your hearing, state why she is leaving you and everything you've said here. You have a case, but if you leave the state, you won't be there to fight it. Can you stay long enough to finish court?

Hey Steve, sorry you're going through this. Have you talked to a lawyer yet? You really need to get some legal advise, you can't take chances when it comes to your son's best interests. All these things you are concerned about need to be documented and as Seraphin said, moving out of state probably won't work in your best interest.

Steve, I agree with the above folks. You really want to try and stay for now. The parent who moves out is not normally at the advantage. You want to keep your advantage and do not move. Let her move out and you keep the boy if she really wants out of the relationship.
Like Larry said get Legal help. You need to know what you are dealing with before you can make a good decision.
If you have the boy you do not have to pay support, and jobs come and go, your boy is forever.
Lots of prayers.

Howdy! I ran across your message and I used to work for a law firm dealing with custody hearings...In Texas, all you need is definate hard-core black and white proof that she is NO WAY a fit mother. So, you have a court ordered drug test, some kind of proof on paper, or something that is physical evidence that she is not giving the child the environment needs. And then the judge will grant you full custody. Good luck!!

I hope everything works out for you Steve. I agree with everyone else. Do whatever you can to stay close to your son and if possible seek legal help. I also agree with Don, common sense and prayers do work wonders.
