over summer teacher wife dashed with 3 year old twin children for 6 weeks and had no idea where they were. When I found their location she was moved in with another male teacher 45 miles away. And had children enrolled in that school district. When I went to the school (September) they were very timid as I asked for their enrollment file as the parent. I found that she had filed with the school district that their was a restraining order against father (this order was denied in district court in July and was unknown to me), that stated that I had threatened children and her with various weapons. This was utilized to keep children with her since no legal custody was in place at the time.
Not likely to win a slander lawsuit based on facts, but you may and do have a right to have sole/joint custody of your children. I would get a family law attorney and file suit to gain custody and child support. Until a valid custody order is in place then you have an equal right to custody of the children. Get a lawyer and fight this. We do offer a free consultation, so give us a call.
You probably won't win a slander suit on these facts, but you can always raise these issues to the Family Law court with evidence of what she has done. Such behavior, if properly documented to the court, can should her bad behavior, and it can have negative consequences for her in custody, visitation, and support hearings.
