Hi, Me and my wife are permanent resident in the US. My wife

Hi,Me and my wife are permanent resident in the US. My wife works from home for a US based software company. She has taken advantage of this situation and has fled to India with my kids and is not planning to return. She is taking advantage of her work from home status as she is currently working from India and still on US payroll. There is no pressure on her to come back to the US. I understand that I can report her for parental abduction of children but before I do that I wanted to know the following:1. Is it legal on part of her employer to allow her to do that, especially when she is using this to commit a criminal offence?2. IS there a way where I can stop her from working from India. Should I send a letter to her HR or call them to explain the situation and inform them that she is committing an offence and her company is facilitating it by allowing her to work from a foreign country.3. Any other suggestion, which would help me. I am trying not to put criminal charges of child abduction on her. If she is not allowed to work from India, she will be compelled to return back

I am an American and my parents got divorce when i was 5. I

I am an American and my parents got divorce when i was 5. I am originally from California and I was taken away from the USA to the Middle East many years ago. I was taken away by my mom because at the time my mom and I were being physically abused by my dad. He filed for child abduction after we left. I am an adult but I would like to have my whereabouts secret from my dad. I would like to have my American passport renewed for easier travel but i am afraid what will happen if I go to an embassy. What kind of questions will be asked? Will my dad need to be contacted even though I'm 28 years old? My mom is elderly now and quite sick and I simply want to avoid seeing my mom go to jail or end up in the media because of my fathers wickedness. I will one day search for my dad and forgive him but I am not ready yet.

I live in Illinois. My daughter who is 2.5 years old and was born and lived in Illinois was abducted by my Russian wife and mother-in-law to a city in Russia. I now have full physical and legal custody and a court order requiring law enforcement to aid in effectuating the order. Many agencies are already involved, but I cannot get the State's Attorney at felony review to tell me what is required to get an Illinois arrest warrant, so that a warrant can be issued on the federal and later INTERPOL level.What is the definition of parental kidnapping (aggravated and otherwise) in Illinois and what do i need to prove in order to get an Illinois arrest warrant issued?
