Should I allow a trip to the USA?:
Sorry, in my ramblings I did not clearly state my objections.
Where I said I do not trust the woman; it is for this reason I fear she is a likely flight risk. She has little to keep her here and I wouldn't put it past her to leave Aus on this trip, then not return.
The wedding is for her sister. The ex, the children and I, live 4 hours away from our capital city, which is where the sister lives. So, it is rare that the children get to see or spend time with this Auntie.
The children have just this weekend, met the American fiancee of their Auntie, so that cannot be a reason for them to travel to the US.
I also have fears of misadventure for my children. There are real issues of my ex not being able to control the boys. One in particular could be quite troublesome to her and if there was a bad situation, she would not be able to handle this and this alone could put the children at great risk, especially if one of them decided to run off and then get lost or be picked up by strangers.
I never have these issues with any of my children, because they respect me and my authority. They rarely try to bang heads with me, mostly because although I am forthright in how I care for my children, I am also very respectful and do all things in a loving manner. In other words, I am simply a normal dad who loves his kids!!
Anyway, I have not heard from the ex after she returned home last night, but aparently she has already been set in motion the applications for passports and had the childrens photos taken.
Thanks again Mike T.
