Did the parent take children out of state prior to start if any court / divorce proceedings, while parents were legally married?
Thank you for your follow up.
Prior to either spouse / parent filing for divorce / child custody in family court, both parents share equal legal and physical custody of the minor children and either parent can take the children and move out of state, and while such move is not illegal or against the law, most judges do frown upon such move, especially if it is done by one parent without other parent's consent / knowledge and / or without some sufficient legal reason.
I wish you the best of luck!
