Hello, my boyfriend's is working on his divorce for this year. His ex-wife has been very adament about their boys meeting me or let them come over our home. My boyfriend visits them every weekend and once during the week. Recently, she told him that she is applying for passports for the boys for dual citizenship in Spain. She claims this is only for them to have more scholarships in the future. We all live in Miami, FL. I have never heard of this. My boyfriend thinks she is up to something but when he asks, she says it has nothing to do with that. We don't know if the purpose of this dual citizenship is because she is preparing for the divorce and be able to fight back the custody of the kids. The boys are 14 and 9 years old. Any advice please? Should he trust her or be worried?
