thank you for the best answer, and I wish you all the luck in the world overcoming your heartache, it wont be easy. it's actually like mourning the passing of a loved one.
I know it hurts I'm free to talk whenever you wish.
absolutely, yes. as long as you need. remember he left you, the only person that can force you to see him would be a judge when it comes to custody issues.
Cut your losses NOW.<br />
ie: Serial cheater turned single-serial-dater right here.
Yes taking the children without his consent would get you charged with kidnapping, barring a court order. So go get LEGAL custody of your kids, and remember whoever gets their first usually wins...
No, legal custody has to be decided by a court, but in most cases it goes mainly to the mother.
Law varies a lot in different countries. Here in the UK, I don't think that you would have a problem, unless you did not let him know where you were, or the authorities thought that you were putting the children at risk.
cant you just tell him you want to take the kids away for awhile? or maybe you should leave them it couldn't hurt could it? is he a bad father or just was seeing someone else
i hope you are able to work it out
