It appears from your question that you are suggesting that your wife abandoned you and the children. Without knowing more about the facts of your case, it is difficult to provide a specific strategy. As a general proposition, it would be necessary to file a petition for dissolution in which you would request custody of your children and support from your spouse. It is often easier to resolve this family law problem with the help of a competent attorney, than to try to go it alone. Understanding the rules and procedures in a family law case when the couple has children can be complicated and emotionally taxing.

You need to file a Petition, and perhaps fr Temporary Orders. We can certainly help you consider and then pursue your options. This is obviously a very important matter, and you should not go in alone.
