Taking the kids


My marriage is about over, although i think it can be salvaged. Wife does not agree.

My wife is from Colombia and both a US citizen and Colombian Citizen (has both passports). We have 2 kids, the older is biological and US citizen with US passport, the younger adopted from colombia and has colombian passport but not yet got US passport although is now a US citizen.

She will not say, but i strongly think that she may try to take them and leave the country. What steps can i take to prevent this and if she is successful what recourse do i have to get the kids back.


If you believe there is a chance she may flee with the child you can and should file for emergency custody to prevent her from leaving with the child and to secure the child’s passport.
