Ask A Lawyer Question:
My wife and I are having some trouble. We have not separated or filed for divorce. She is threatening to leave with our kids and move back to the country we moved here from. We as do our kids all have duel citizenship. Can she do that?
Ask A Lawyer Answer:
If your wife is threatening to take the kids from you and move to a different country, I would go ahead and meet with a divorce lawyer to see what precautions you can take. We have an office here in Kentucky, and we could discuss your case further with you.
You would need to file divorce, and then file a motion to prevent her from removing out of the state or county with the children. Another precaution that you can take in the meantime is to retain the children’s passports.
