Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Your daughter would have to file a petition for divorce and for temporary custody of the children through the court in order to stop him from leaving with the children and removing them from the state. If she is serious about ending this verbally abusive relationship, then you need to get her to a lawyer this week and have the lawyer file the petition for divorce and for temporary custody of the children, which would contain a provision that the children must remain in the state until a final custody order is determined by the court. This is the only way to settle this and protect your daughter and the children if he is verbally abusive to them as well as her.
