Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Unfortunately, this happens to be a major legal issue for many parents who are married to foreign spouses from countries who refuse to recognize US court rulings or the jurisdiction of the US.

Your options are very limited here. The first option, the legal option, is to hire an attorney in Jordan to represent you and to seek custody of the children from the Jordanian courts. In Jordan, the courts still favor the mother until the children reach the age of maturity, 13-15, where the courts can allow them to live with the father. However, the Jordanian courts will not generally approve removal of the children from the country without approval of the father. So an attorney there would need to fight this case through the courts

The alternative, which we cannot suggest to you but has been used by some other parents in similar situations, is finding someone who can go into Jordan to get the children and remove them from the country back to the US, which would then force your husband to return to the US to fight for custody and visitation rights in the US. Based on his conduct, the US courts would likely not allow him to remove the children from the US and would allow you to hold their passports.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
