Help! I divorced my husband over four years ago. In the divorce, there was no custody arrangement (bad judge, bad lawyer). Anyway, I always allowed my kids to visit their father and grandparents whenever (both live in another state) Over the summer, they started making comments about "swooping" in to get the kids and I started to worry that my ex would keep the kids and not return them. I called a lawyer who said with no visitation arrangement, keep them until there is one in place. I can't afford to finish the visitation paperwork with a lawyer, so we still have no custody arrangement (he's an attorney so I have to be careful - and he could do the paperwork himself). The grandparents want to come visit. I don't trust them and worry that they will have the kids at the airport before I know what's going on. Am I being perianoid? Help!
