My son has two children 3 and a 16 month old. His legal wife after 8 months of marriage abandoned him and the children and moved to Boston. At the time the the baby was 8 months and the oldest at 2 years old. Her reason was this is not the life she wanted. He wants a divorce, and custody of children, but she is not agreeing to this. She has not seen the children since shes gone, nor given any help financially to assist in the care of them. She has not expressed any plans at the present moment to return and visit children, or care for them or anything. Is there anything my son can do to gain custody because he is the sole provider at the moment and feels the children are better taken care of with him, as well as support from all of us (mom, dad etc).Other than divorce, what are his rights for custody? How does a situation like this appeal to the court system based on the fathers behalf? More details please!
