The U.S. Embassy has no authority to create a temporary custody order for U.S. parents and children. So, I don't know what sort of form you and your wife created, but I'm willing to bet that it has no legal authority in Ohio or anywhere else -- unless
you are a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, and what you executed was a MIlitary Power of Attorney (10 U.S.C. sec. 1044B).
That said, your only recourse is to return to the USA and advance your rights to custody of your child(ren). If you do not do this, then the court can (and probably will) enter orders that will make the other parent the primary custodian of the children, and the court will probably not grant you anything more than minimal visitation.
I realize that this is not what you want to read, but unless you know exactly where you stand, then you may be misled by others who do not understand the law, and you will not be able to protect your interests as a consequence.

Please understand that I "justanswer" questions “about” the law. I have no interest in providing you with anything less than a completely satisfying answer. However, if the law does not favor your unique circumstances, then the best that I can do is to explain what the law "is" and what it "is not."
And, if you need to contact me again, please put my user id on the title line of your question (“ToCustomerrdquo;), and the system will send me an alert. Thanks!
