Not entirely sure - he has a comfortable life here but is tempted by the thought of seeing friends where he used to live
Thanks for this Clare.
There are some comments/questions:the application of the 'law' and the views of Social Services are not in harmony. We have been told that our grandson is too young to make a choice and the relative merits of both options would be considered if Social Services were to become involved. If neither party currently has Parental Responsibility, can we apply for a Residence Order or a Parental Responsibility Order to pre-empt any similar action by the father. Presumably, as things are now, neither ourselves nor the father have 'priority'. If this is so, returning to the original question, is there any action that we can take that would leave us at least one step ahead?
