You should have had his permission in writing. He was probably setting you up. Honestly you needed to get back asap or you risk him being given primary custody. It sounds so stressful. Take care of...

I use too many prepared chicken nuggets and things like that. So one of my goals this summer is to try to make things like that myself. I don't think it's a home cooked meal when you serve store...

You don't share tax returns each year? Most orders here seem to have parents share the final income number on their return each year.

If it's been years it's definitely worth it.

Would you consider having him take just the oldest child? A 9 year old could manage the flight much better. And maybe they would add in a stop over half way for a rest? It's such a terribly long way...

I think you would have just cause to leave with the kids given they were born there and you aren't even legal to work. That itself indicates a lack of planning to stay in the country long term.
