If couple is married and mother files for divorce and wants to leave home with the children, can she take the children and leave while the divorce is pending when there is no parenting time order? Who has custody of the children when there is a marriage and divorce is filed (no parenting time order because of the marriage)?
It's a very gray area. If there is no order, a hearing must be requested ASAP to determine the custody.
