Children’s wellbeing firstmost – KESB – permit?

As this is not my situation, I’m writing very abstractedly. I’d be grateful if anyone could point me to relevant laws or cases. Thanks.

2 parents, never married, 3 children together.
Let’s just call them Bob and Sue.

Sue has citizenship of a non-EU country, let us call it Go-land (though this is just a fantasy name for a real country) and also Swiss citizenship.
Bob has only one citizenship, namely of country Go-land.
All 3 children have citizenship of Go-land and also Swiss citizenship.

Sue has her usual place of residence in Switzerland, but is on a longterm visit to Go-land.
Bob and the children are in Switzerland.
Bob’s permit for Switzerland is about to expire.

Sue does intend to return to Switzerland from Go-land, but her return date is several months AFTER Bob’s permit for Switzerland is set to expire.

Could anyone advise, please, of known legal arguments or the basis thereof, upon which to appeal for Bob to be allowed to stay in Switzerland? If Bob is sent out of Switzerland, the children would have to be placed in formal care in Switzerland, since neither of their parents will be here. Unless they go back to Go-land with Bob where, from all accounts, they would be in danger (and that’s another story, not for this question).

If this has been dealt with elsewhere, I’d appreciate the links. I’m exhausted, and this time just cannot do the research. And yes, it is urgent.
Thank you very much to anyone who can make a helpful contribution.
