Does the mother have the right to move her 2 kids to another city while still married to their father in one city without notice?
State/Country relating to question: Nebraska
Nothing, My brother was just told of the situation Sunday when he talked to his wife, thinking she just was going to visit her parents for the weekend. Took both of their kids and is pregnant with a third. She is now claiming that she is not coming back and keeping the kids. she is a stay at home mom and My brother, her husband is a Doctor at a Sports Chiropractic Clinic.
If there is no court order preventing the mother from doing this, she can. A parent has uninhibited rights to take his/her child wherever the parent wants to.
However, the other parent could file a petition for a court order to force the parent to return the child, and if this happens, she would have to comply.
What actions need to be made to get a court order
A motion for injunctive relief would have to be filed to get a court ordering the mother to return.
