My wife decided to take the kids and go to California so they could visit their grandparents. Since she has been there, she has not allowed me to talk to our kids. She now states that they are staying in California for good. Prior to her leaving, she verbally told me that they would return. I am in the Army and I am currently stationed in Georgia. Is there anything I can do to have a legal right to see my kids?
Based on the facts you provided, it appears as though your wife seeks to legally separate. You may want to initiate a claim for custody in Georgia based on the legal separation. You should contact a local family law attorney to consult with for legal advice.
