Answer:

You can’t do anything while you all are still married because you both have rights. What you can do is if the marriage is broken is perhaps file for divorce. Meet a family law attorney in the county you live in and see if that county has a Standing Order that gets activated when you file for divorce and serve the other party. Typically a Standing Order for dissolution cases has a provision that the other party cannot remove the kids from the jurisdiction. Best thing to do is meet with a local attorney to discuss these matters tailored to your situation. Best of luck!
