My husband and I are ALWAYS fighting. He always threatens to take our kids from me. Legally how far can he go? We live in Indiana. I'm just curious as to if he can legally leave the state or can only go so many miles or what. I just want to save my own butt on this.

I'm from IN and once I was divorced my son couldn't leave the state ever. He never met his father yet we were trapped in IN. I couldn't take him to my father's funeral in FL. He couldn't go to King's Island, Chicago, or on scout trips. To move to AZ when he was 19 we had to have him emancipated. Now he is 22 and he has problems every year with financial aid because he is emancipated.
If you are married and neither has filed for divorce and custody I think a parent can take a take the child. If you are divorced it is kidnapping, amber alert and everything but if you are married and the person is the parent I think they have the right to travel with the child. If you can't trust your husband then you may consider if you can risk staying with him.
