Also it depends why she doesnt like Canada and why she is depressed. Is there anything you can do to change something to try and persude her to come back. Is there anything about the place you live she might like to be changed (ie decorating, clearing out). Just try to be normal whilst their on vacation, when you speak to them ask if they are enjoying their vacation, what they have been up to during their time in Ireland and make clear you are looking forwards to them returning. Just keep supporting her as best you can, its all you can do.

There are different laws for different countries but I think your daughter can choose who she wants to live with. I guess you have to wait till the return date has passed before you can do anything legally, if they dont come back. Your wife is probably finding things different during her menopause, she may just need space, may think she wants to be dependent for once etc etc (ive heard it can do funny things to ppl!). She may decide to come back once shes had some space, or may feel she cant cope on her own. I once heard this and it always stops me and make me think whenever I am in a situation where it might apply - If you love them, let them be free, if they return it was meant to be! Give her some space for a week or so and they try to talk with her. Just be yourself and show you will support her with whatever is wrong. Good luck!

Where are you from? Even though you and your wife are married, if she is staying in Ireland and keeping your kid without your permission, you can charge her with kidnapping if you so choose. Since she is out of the country I am not quite sure how this would work but I do know the US has an Ebassy in Ireland that may be able to help you out. I would first call the police and say that your wife kidnapped your daughter, the get a really good family law lawyer to help you get your daughter back, file for a quick divorce based on abandonment (keep everything valuable and give her all the debt that belongs to her), get full custody and move on with your life. Do you know why your wife has decided to stay in Ireland?
