I have recently sent my children to stay with their father for a few months. He and his girlfriend has decided to cut all communication off after the kids have been out there for a week. They are claiming that since I gave temporary guardianship (due to being able to get the kids enrolled in school and getting benefits while they are there) for 3 months, that I have basically given them up to him and her. Is this true? Do they have the right to cut off communication? Up until now, I have been their only sole provider. Thier father have not been in the picture much, nor provided anything at all for them. His girlfriend is just that, his girlfriend. There are no court orders, just a piece of paper that both people signed. I live in IL and he lives in NV.
