Re: Divorce and children back to home country

Hi Forum


After 4 years in Switzerland, my wife wants to divorce and I need some help. We both are coming from Spain and we have a B permit (Zurich). She is not working here and does not want to, she only wants to go back to Spain to work there and take the children with her. The children are doing fine here and are well adapted and I want to remain with them. It looks like we will not agree on this point and we will need to fight for their custody.

Do I have any chance to get the custody here? Probably she will file the divorce in Spain, can I go the the Swiss court to claim for the custody? Do I have any chance to get it?

Any help is welcome.
Perhaps your lawyer could argue that your wife is unable to sustain the children?

Deposit the kids passports with the lawyer or similar person?
Only returnable with permission of both sides?


I have no experience, just an idea.. Might at least prevent air travel.
Brilliant! I hereby award you the "Sharp mind of the day award".

If she is not working, then she is more likely to get custody.

Why, Tom? Setting out the arguments you see for this line of reasoning could help OP.

No always.

Someone I know got custody rather than his ex because she was working and he not, thus he had more time to spend at home with the kid.

I am trying but failing to harness my general crassness but I would say that was how it all started in the first place. You reap what you sow.

Re: Divorce and children back to home country

I don't think the wife can legally take the children out of the country without the father's consent. However, realistically she probably could. My husband is French and I am Canadian. I didn't change my last name when we married. Only one of our three kids currently has Canadian citizenship (she was born there) and they all have only French passports.

I now have a French passport as well, but for the first several years we lived in Switzerland I regularly travelled (often to Canada) alone with my kids who shared neither my last name nor my nationality. I always made sure to have a document signed by my husband authorising me to travel alone with the kids, but no one EVER asked for it. It still amazes me.
