I agree with Mr. Sampair's response. I also encourage you to meet with an experienced family law attorney so that you can obtain legal advice that is specific to your particular circumstances.
The information provided is general in nature and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
You would not likely be charged with kidnapping, but you run a strong probability of the court awarding the children returned and the children then being awarded to their father.
You must obey the provisions of ARS25-408 and give dad 60 days notice to relocate the kids. If dad objects, there is a strong possibility you would lose a court battle. I have attached a link to ARS25-408.
Read it carefully and I suggest you consult a family law attorney before making any move.
