Are you saying she has removed the children from the home and is living elsewhere with them or why else can you not see the children? Have you moved out of the home already?
It is very risky for you to leave the home in the province at this point in time. You will be said to have abandoned the children. So if you want sole or joint custody it is vital that you do not move out of the home yet. Your spouse seems to believe that she owns the children. She does not have any higher right than you do to the children. So for her to tell you that you cannot even say good bye to the children is unacceptable and very harmful to the children. She does not seem to care about their best interests at all.
By removing the children from the home without your consent or a court order your spouse has acted unlawfully. So if you interested in considering obtaining sole or joint custody of these children your best next step would be to apply to the court on an emergency basis for sole custody because your spouse has committed parental abduction. In that way you will have the upper hand because until you are back in court in a couple of weeks you will have custody of the children which will put you in a very strong position in terms of obtaining sole or joint custody.
At the very least, it is vital that you first consult with a family lawyer face to face before changing the status quo in any way. If you leave the home now you may later deeply regret this move that was made without legal advice.
