What is the law regarding taking children across state lines after divorce? Posted on May 13, 2011

My friend is from Kansas, she got married and moved just over the Missouri line. She now want to file for divorce and move back here. I was researching and found that you cant take children and move out of state until the divorce proceedings are final. She doesn’t know anyone in Missouri and we live merely 40 minutes apart. Just happens to be different states. Is there some way to go about this without breaking any laws? Her husband just recently became an American citizen and she is afraid that if he gets the chance he will take them to Mexico where he still has a large family.
