My wife recently left the marital home and took the kids with her. She has denied me the right to see or talk to them for over a week now. She also returned to the marital home and changed the locks while I was at work. What is the first step in getting my kids, am I to file a petition for custody and support? Also, she works nights and leaves the children at her brother’s home. Can I call the police and pick my kids up since I am their father without a Court Order? Just a note, there is no abuse or other issue with me that would justify her actions.
Thanks for any help/advice
