Legal Question in Family Law in Missouri

My ex girlfriend and I raised kids together and she tells everyone we adopted our three children, but at court she left my name off the paperwork and gave them her last name. Now she is holding them over my head to get me to stay with her so I can see my kids. Is there anything I can do to get to see my kids without staying with her? I want out of the relationship, but she says if i leave I won't get my kids. What to do?

Are you the biological father or legal father of the children? What are you referring to when you mention "at court"? Obviously, she didn't need to adopt the children, or did she? You don't include enoug of the relevant facts for an attorney to provide any assistance. I would suggest that you try again.
