Thank you for contacting our JA team for guidance.
I am very sorry to hear of your difficult situation. The best and fastest way to handle this situation is for your son to file a petition for dissolution or legal separation
. At the same time, he needs to file a motion for a temporary order
stating that children are not to be moved out of the immediate area. While filing the petition requires that the parties maintain the status quo, including not moving the children out of state, if he has an order and she violates it, the police are more likely to aid him in getting the children back without going through additional proceedings.
The state bar association can provide your son with attorney referrals. He really needs one to get the petition and motion filed quickly.
Please let me know if you need additional information.
