Can a separated couple take kids from their parent?

My friend is a man in the Army. His wife, whom he is separated from, is trying to take his 4 children and move to Arizona from Ft. Campbell, KY. Because he is in the Army he can't move to Arizona to be with his kids. Is there any law that can help keep his children near where he is stationed at least until the divorce procedings and custody hearings have been completed?

In all honesty, most courts will side with the mother, unless she can be proved unfit. There is some way that you can keep her in their current state UNLESS she has no where to go there. Im not sure how its done, but I have seen it done with a friend of mine. Because your friend is in the military, active duty im assuming, the courts will more than likely side with his ex because she is more stable and will have more time with the children. It really sucks, but it is usually how it works.
