Q: Can I file kidnapping charges on my ex wife, if she takes my kids away somewhere, so that I cant have them on my days?
A: If your wife takes the kids away and denies you your visitation, and you have a Court Order in place that memorializes your visitation schedule, you can apply to the Court to have her held in contempt of that Court Order. If she is found guilty of contempt, the Judge may impose fines that could include jail time. To accomplish this, you will almost certainly need the help of an attorney. Reach out to a licensed family law attorney in Oklahoma for help.
Tracy Tiernan agrees with this answer
A: Ask yourself this, do you really want your children to grow up knowing their father tried to file a felony charge against mommy? There are numerous other grown up ways in which to handle this problem. Contact your divorce attorney, ask then to enforce the divorce decree provisions regarding custody and visitation. Children are smarter than you think and they are always watching and listening. Good luck!
