This is not bubhub related but I'm hoping to get others opinions as this is really bugging me.
Long story short DH has three sisters all in their teens. His parents are separated and the kids although have a stressful life do well at school and never get in trouble, so about two years ago we asked both parents if it would be ok if we took the girls to America for a holiday. Both said yes. We saved up for 2 yrs and so did the girls. 6 months ago we scored cheapy flights so we booked.
ever since MIL has been a royal pain in the bum. She refused to pay for the kids passports, not only that but even taking them to lodge or filling out any paperwork, thankfully FIL has been helpful. We've since had a huge falling out with MIL to the point that no one is talking to her. The kids are not impressed by her behaviour either (she's unstable and prone to anger) anyway she's been yelling left and right that she'll stop them going, she even yelled this to me as I went to get her signature for the paperwork (tho she signed) DH doesn't think she'll go that far, my concer is what if she tells authorities we're kidnapping the kids!? I can just see DH and myself getting arrested I also have an 8month old with me... What if they take her? Even while they clear it all up... I couldn't deal and would seriously have a breakdown...
So my question is can she really do anything? And what? How?
