HelloThis is Samuel. Please tell me1 - Are you still living together?2 - Purpose for opposing the travel?
Thank you.Under the law, each parent as long as they are married has an equal right to the children. To get the court to interfere with her moving the children, you would need to prove that she is abusive or neglectful and in general just simply unfit to continue to parent.You also could file for a legal separation and request the court grant you temporary custody of the children.
Of course, if you can secure the children's passports, then they can't go. And if they do not have passports, they can't get it without your permission and signature.
So I suggest, you try to secure the passports so she won't have them. Then you can file for a restraining order. You can get the forms to file for the RO from the clerk of the court where you live. Tell the clerk, you need to have an emergency ex parte so that the spouse cannot leave the country with the children.
Please let me know here if you have other questions or need clarification. Otherwise a Positive rating ensures i get credit for my time.
