[color:green]It's not that they don't care, but until there is an order establishing "custody" (even "temporary"), he has just as much legal right to the children as you do and they can't do anything.
If you are granted "physical" custody, then he will have to turn the children over to you and if he refuses, you can get the assitance of the police and/or the Sheriff's department.
If you are not granted "physical" custody, but have "parenting time" and he doesn't allow you to see them, then you will need to contact the police and/or sheriff's department (at least for a report) and file an OSC (Order to Show Cause aka Contempt) immeadiately. I would also include a reversal of "physical" custody.
You will also want to get the RO quashed ASAP.[/color]
