Mom Desperate For Her Kids After Ex Takes Them To India & Doesn’t Return

Posted: Updated:
Plainsboro, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Last week President Obama signed into law the Sean & David Goldman Act which authorizes the State Department to take forceful measures against a country that doesn't help to return an American child held there. Oftentimes, these cases of international child abduction occur when parents are divorced and one parent is holding a child or children from the other parent in a different country.

Sadly, that is the case for Plainsboro woman Bindu Philips. She and her now ex-husband, Sunil Jacob, lived in a beautiful house in Plainsboro where her beautiful 13 year- old twin boys, Albert and Alfred, were born, making them US Citizens. Philips and her ex-husband are also US citizens.

However, in 2008 her husband was laid off from CitiGroup and he decided to take a family vacation to India.

“We went during the Christmas holidays of our children so after reaching India he separated the children from me deceptively and then he abandoned me in India refusing any form of contact. I was not able to communicate with them or see them,” Philips recalled.

Jacobs enrolled the boys in a school and gave strict orders to not allow Philips to see them. She had no idea what was going on. The vacation was supposed to be only one month but Philips stayed for 4 months trying desperately to see her children, to no avail. She is a citizen of the US, so she had to return. When she got back is when it really took a turn.

She returned home, broken, only to find out that her entire house and all her possessions were packed up and shipped to India while she was gone. Both of the cars were gone, her bank accounts totally wiped clean and the mortgage and bills had not been paid for months.

“Nothing, there we no pictures of my children, none of my belongings, none of educational certificates, it was like an empty home,” she said.

Luckily, Philips had a good friend and neighbor who let her stay with them while she was trying to figure everything out. She was able to get a job and she's been using all the money she's making to try and contact her kids for the last six-years to let them know that she cares and loves them.

“Your mommy loves you Albert and Alfred. I love you so much. I miss you so much. I live everyday thinking about you. There is no day that goes by without me thinking of you, but I know that God will help us get reunited soon because he sees the truth. May God be with you always and I will never give up on you. I'm gonna try my best to be reunited with you as soon as I can,” she said choking back tears.

Philips alleges that her ex is brainwashing the kids and telling them that she's abandoned them. The State of New Jersey has granted Philips full-custody and has even sent letters to the government in India to tell them to bring the children back.

“At the very first hearing the judge had passed an order that I should be able to communicate with my children everyday so that my children won't be alienated from me,” she said.

However, more problems have arisen because Jacob has also filed for full custody of the children in India. Now, the FBI along with the Plainsboro police department has issued warrants for her ex-husband's arrest should he return to the States. Sadly, the Indian government has not been cooperating and the case is currently at a standstill.
