Can the kids and I move back home ifa reconciliation with my husband doesn’t work out?

Over a year ago my husband said that he wanted a divorce. He found a new job out of state and moved out leaving the kids and I. Now he says that he is sorry and wants us to come join him in the new state he is in. I want to give reconciliation a chance but I fear that if he goes back to his old ways and we end up divorcing then I will be stuck in this new state where I don’t want to live far away from my friends and family. Is there any way to protect myself so that I can bring the kids back home with me if things don’t work out?

You are right to be concerned here and I hope for all of you that the reconciliation works out.  But I can understand your fears.  If you move your family to the other state and establish residency then I think that it would be a problem to move them back if things should not work out.  What I might suggest is that you seek legal advice about the legality of entering in to some form of contract with your spouse about the issue, both in your present state and the state to which you are moving. If you leave with out it it could be kidnapping.  Good luck.
