The thing is that generally speaking women can’t do that. Even in the US. If you are from Vermont and move to Texas and marry a guy from Texas and have kids in Texas and divorce in Texas, you can’t just pick up and move your kid to Vermont.

This is kind of crap of her. It’s where her kid was born and raised and has a dad. They weren’t living in the Us and went for a visit and he wouldn’t let her leave like in “not without my daughter”. She wanted to be there. Most women would be screwed.

I'm sorry, but no. This man is an abusive controlling asshole. He got custody of their child and then fucked with her immigration status so that she was beholden to him - in other words, she could have permanently (? I could be misunderstanding this bit, but I know a lot of countries Do Not Fuck Around with people who illegally overstay their visa) been kicked out of the country, never to see her daughter again. If she would have "made up" and stayed there it would have been a nightmare for her daughter.

Leaving is the smartest thing she's done in this story.
