No she can't legally do that and, in fact, what she has done and is doing is emotional abuse and constitutes parental alienation. If your intention or that of your wife is to pursue a divorce, you, as the father should seek temporary orders from the court regarding custody and parent time. If you would like to come talk to me about this, I offer a free initial consultation. My number is 801-274-3100.
