Mexican Law/Getting Children out of Mexico


I am a Canadian - married to a Mexican.  We live in Canada but are moving to Mexico because my husband wants us to try to live there.  We have two children - 3 years and 3 months. My question is - if I am not happy and want to leave Mexico to return to Canada - say in about a year - will I be able to leave and bring my children with me?  What if my husband wants to keep the children in Mexico? Will the Mexican government allow me to take my children back to Canada?  They are Canadian citizens.  Thank you

Before anything else, thanks for writing me at

Where you got marriage?

Yes, you can back with your children if you both are agree or if you win a case.

In Mexico, mothers have preferences under Mexican Law, but depends of specific case too.

If you are a good mother, I don't see problem.

If you want, let me know it please.

Thank you very much for visiting me at
