My husband wants to travel out of the US without me.I cannot afford to pay for the ticket myself to go with them. We are married and we have no court order. But he says that he can take my kids anywhere he wants and doesn't care about my rights for these kids. I am scared of him taking them away and never bring them back again. He has the passport of one child and we didn't apply for the baby's passport yet.I just want to know that if he does take them will I be able to legally bring them back to the US even if he refuses? Please help
You should immediately consult with one or more experienced family law attorneys. You may need to file for a divorce and request some allocation of parental responsibilities and parenting time. You also need to check to see if the country or countries he wants to take the children to are members of The Hague Convention. If not, you need to do everything you can to stop him from taking the children there. In the meantime, don’t cooperate with the application for the baby’s passport. Don’t sign anything. Don’t delay. Find an attorney now.
