Depends on why you are leaving. Are you fleeing for your life?

Do you think you have enough "proof" of the abuse to get a restraining order? If not, I'd say you can face some serious legal issues for leaving the state with your children. For you to be protected, you must be fleeing for your life. You must feel that you are in danger of serious bodily harm. If that's not the case, you will have to get a lawyer and go through the court system to be able to leave. Contact legal aid, they can help you on a sliding scale fee.

"Threated to "shoot" my 5 year old and throw my 2 year old across the room. Swears at me, cut me off of ALL finances. I need out."
Yes, you have enough proof. When you flee and get to the state you want to be in, file for a restraining order against him and you tell the judge exactly what you just said up above and tell him in detail that you "fear for your life and the lives of your children". I wish you the best of luck. If you need any more help, you can email me.

Also, since these are "threats", give the judge an example of a time where he made a threat and he did follow through with his threat. That's all the proof you need.
