Find a legal representative to help you first thing. If you were married and you hold full custudy due to divorce then as long as you notified the court before foot it should be ok. If you were not married then you should atomatically have full custudy and be capable of live where you want. If he has never filed for visitation and is going for full custudy he would own to prove that you are unfit to care for the child. make sure you file within Tennessee for full custody.
If you are already living in a different state I would not worry about it too much. Truthfully since he have only filed and there have been no hearing then he have no say.
If you were living in equal state and had a visitation agreement with joint custody consequently he could make an issue of you skipping state.
