3. The mother of my children took my kids to Colorado. She says she did it out of desperation and is wanting to move back, but wanting and trying are two different things.
4. She lied about some of the reasons for the move and was generally frustrating.
She literally cannot do that, legally, as far as I know. File some papers.
SV, you are absolutely correct in the legal sense. In practice the judge will most likely issue an order to return and if she ignores it no enforcement will happen.
Now, sometimes you can get the order enforced, so it's worth doing. I'm just noting that it doesn't typically turn out that way (not to be confused with the father, fathers that ignore orders typically end up in handcuffs and with a free ride downtown).
My girlfriend either has a split personality or is possessed by a demon periodically. Neither prospect is very fun...especially when "whatever she is" physically injures my girlfriend...
I'm sorry to be a jackass, but bullshit. The disorder to which you're referring is excruciatingly rare and you have better odds of winning the lottery than to be dating a sufferer of said disorder. Don't make excuses for her bad fucking behavior. If she's being an asshole it's just because she doesn't have the human decency to not be an asshole. She should be accorded the courtesy of a polite goodbye and then left to her own devices. Clearly you're not "the one" to help get her past this, she's doing it while you're around and you may even be a habitual "trigger" for some of the bad behavior.
TLDR: Fuck her for being an ass, seriously, she doesn't have a disease, she's just acting poorly. Don't make excuses for her.
