A: If it was a Colorado divorce, she will need court approval to leave with the children. The PPO is something the court can take into consideration.

A: More information is needed to answer your question. Are the kids on the protection order? Are there custody orders in place? Has a custody case been filed? If not, one could be filed and if she is served she cannot take the kids out of state until/unless a court order giving her permission is issued. You should consult with a child custody attorney.
