I know this is circle of moms but I couldn't find any other site for dads. My child's mother is abusive towards me physically and verbally and refuses to allow me to see my children all cause she's in a new relationship. Were not married and I'm in Illinois. Am I allowed to take my kids without going to jail for kidnapping? I hear my kids crying for me all the time and I can't stand to see my kids crying and upset. They are 4 and 5 yrs old. Thanks for your time and help in this matter.

As the other ladies have said... document all of your attempts at contact and get a lawyer to go to court. Good luck!

If you decide to just take the kids, you may not be charged for kidnapping, but it will not look good for you in a court when a judge hears the custody issues. The best thing you can do is go to see a lawyer and have some orders drawn up. Establish custody and visitation arrangements in a court, and then she has no choice but to allow you to see your children. Make your appointment with a lawyer ASAP and also start documenting the times you attempt to see them and what happens. Keep trying to make contact to attempt visitation, but make sure it doesn't border on harassment.

As I have told any mothers on this forum and a lot of other moms here have also suggested is that you get a lawyer and take your concerns to court in the state she lives in. Since she refuses you any contact it is called parental alienation and in some cases the judge has given the refused parent custody. What you need to do is find a family lawyer there to represent you and explain your situation. Also have you documented the times you either called or shown up and been denied visits? If you have that can be used in court to show a pattern of your trying to see your kids and her denials of your seeing them. You two should have long ago gone to court to set visitation, custody, and child support.
