Hello, I'm not sure if I'm in the right place, but I have a question about my wife moving out with the kids as part of our separation. Things have been amicable to date and there is no history of domestic violence or substance abuse, etc. I have been in Federal Policing for many years. My question is, prior to any parenting agreement being signed, what rights do I have if my wife just moves out with the kids? Does she automatically have full custody of children? How is it determined in the interim? What happens prior to any family court involvement? Kind regards.
