Leaving state with children

My daughter has 2 children by her present husband. He moved her to North Carolina 3 years ago for the sole purpose of keeping her and the children. He has told her repeatedly that she can’t leave him and come back to Florida because North Carolina law won’t permit it.

He has a terrible temper and has lost more jobs in a year than most people have in a life time. They are losing their home and are delinquient on all of thier bills. Our daughter is working as many hours as she can, and is raising the kids, keeping the house and paying the bills. He comes home early from work and goes to bed about 5 pm every day.

Her life is misery. This is her second marriage and she has an older child from her first marriage and the custody thing is so hard on them all.
