Spouse Concealing Child’s Location

How does one handle a spouse who has abducted the 3 smallest (of 6) children and is concealing her whereabouts and those of the children and is refusing to communicate. I am going through all of the legal motions (pro per) however I am concerned about the ramifications of her failure to communicate. There is the potential for imprisonment (custodial interference), which is neither my desire or intent. (I dont want my children’s mother incarcerated.) Additionally her family (in particular her mother) is refusing to communicate with me as well. I have been forced to have her mother and her son (from a previous marriage) served with the divorce/custody papers and still no comunication from her family (My spouse and her mother both claim to be christians however their conduct in the midst of this struggle is not compatible with their proffession of faith.) What is one to do?

I don’t think any of us would want to see someone we loved or the mother/father of our children incarerated, however we must do what is best for the children. It isn’t fair what your spouse is doing, nor is it safe. I have no experience in this matter but I would seek legal recourse and continue to fight for my rights. I would also consider counseling and try to find a way to bury the hatchet with my partner. Then again some people just don’t get it. Continue to pray for guidance and God to open your spouses eyes to the harm she is causing.
