Yes it could definitely be a problem. If he is part of your son's life then your relocation to Great Britain would deprive him of that. You will need to settle this issue before you are divorced. The divorce papers will have to specify that you have fully custody, that you are taking your son with you to Great Britain with his consent, and should include whatever visitation is agreed to. If you cannot agree to this I would strongly urge you to get a lawyer familiar with relocation law.
