Often, I hear people ask me whether or not a spouse can keep you away from your children. The plain simple answer is no, they can't keep you away from your children. There would need to be some type of court order in place that would restrict your ability to see your child. Often, it is a tale that is told by one spouse just to scare the other. It would be my advice since you are dealing with minor children to seek an attorney for their legal opinion.
