Looking for help in Egypt

Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men

Submitted by Nancy Delgado, Nov 18, 2018 at 12:20

I am looking for help for an American woman married to an Egyptian Muslim man and they are living in Egypt.

After more than 20 years of marriage (married in US and moved to Egypt a few years into the marriage so he could set up a business) she used to be able to travel freely with their children until now. He has taken their American passports (all children were born in US) and won't let them leave.

The children are all teenagers. The eldest wants to attend college in the States. What are their rights? Are their any resources available for help/advice?
