Hi everyone, and thanks in advance. A friend of mine is trying to leave her partner (not married) They have been together for 6 years, have two children together (2 and 5 years old). She has tried to leave before but he is very manipulative and makes her feel that she cannot leave. He is not physically abusive to her or the children but it could be said that he is mentally and emotionally abusive to her. She wants to move closer to her family for support but that is 6 1/2 hours away. He is threatening to take her to family court, can he stop her from taking the children and moving 6 1/2 hours away under family law? She is the primary care giver. Thanks again, I hope I have provided enough information.
