want to divorce him so I can be free and happy with my children, but he claims that because he is the father and they have dual citizenship in his country, he can take the kids at any time to live there.

I maintain that he is an unfit father because he can’t support them financially, never takes them to school or attends their school functions, and is verbally abusive to them.
