That's Interesting because because that's a) grounds for abandonment b) faking stamps on the passport (passport shows they have only been out of the country for 10 days where as various other legal documents indicate that they in fact have been out of the country for 5-6 months each time). possible grounds for tax evasion as well as there is no treaty with the home country.
