Yes, you can sue but you are asking the wrong question. You need to ask "Will I recover anything if I sue." The best thing for you to do is to consult with a civil rights attorney. Take proof of your monetary damages and any other documentation that you may have with you to the consultation.

Who has the kids now? It's best during this time of sadness to discuss this with your kids, if they are old enough, and whoever is caring for them.

You are legally entitled to their custody until a court rules otherwise. Good luck, and be mindful of the terrible loss the kids have suffered.
