I have 53% custody of my 3 chidren, the ex has 47%. In a two week period we have the children 7 days each. I would love to move back to my family in NC as I have noone here and my step dad is dying. However, the ex will not let me take any of the kids and he won't let me leave them behind either. He says if I'm not here when its my turn for visitation then I will be in contempt of the court order and I will be arrested. If I take any of the kids he will do the same. He also told me if I leave the kids behind that he doesn't want to be a FT dad and he will see to it that they are in foster care within the week. Would someone please help me? He is just trying to keep me here and I want to be with my family but I cant take the kids or leave them? What are my options? I cannot afford another lawyer!! Thank you all!!
