My husband and I have been separated since October 2016... We have two kids (14 and 17 years old), and they're living with me. He gaves me legal custody of them in Venezuela... I'm not receiving money from my husband since we got here, so I'm a single mom right now...
Yes, probably. I would suggest you consult with a local lawyer and go a little more into detail of the facts of your case. (For example, the lawyer will ask if there is a "pending" case in Venezuela, among other questions.)
