II live in florida . My ex wife along with my 2 minor children live in Illinois. Since our divorce in 2010, due to a restrainibg order against me, i cant have contact with issues pertaining to my children. My ex wife has repeatedly lost / gave up voluntarily custody to her sister. I have no idea whats going on, and as their father, dont know my legal rights. She has attempted suicide srvetal times, and drinks heavily.... thr drinking from what little info i gained is why she volunteered to give up custody temporarily to her sister. Can i gain custody of mu children, and move them to Florida ? If not whats my options?

Without knowing why there is a restraining order against you which has barred contact with your kids, the questions can not be answered.
Consult with an lawyer who can talk with you, get specifics and review your divorce decree and restraining order to get the best advice.
