Hi, he hasn't had the children yet over christmas as he rejected the offer of contact that I made. He will collect the children this friday and should return them sunday - but he has said he will keep the children till tuesday at 10am. Lets hope they're there to collect.
I hope that by going back to mediation we can sort out contact for christmas, the girls birthdays and also holidays.
I'm concerned he'll take them away, but have decided on a plan - to ask for their passports as i'm taking them on a day trip and then if he takes them away without my consent, he can only do it in the uk - hopefully the police would then be able to find them.
Please can you answer the following - back in summer he had them for a two week holiday, when I asked him where he was planning to go, he told me it was non of my business and would only confirm they were staying in the uk - is he legally allowed to do that? thanks.
I have no objection as long as I know they're staying in the uk. His sister lives in france.
I've just said I'll drop them off at 3 and I want to collect the passports - he's said no, he'll collect and get the passports to me before the day trip to france (my excuse to get the passports). A friend is coming with me for the handover.
no, his sister is away skiing at the mo. i think he's going to try and take them away in uk but i want to get passports so he can't go off to france - easier to get children back from uk
remove them for good
Thanks, but we've hit pants. He can keep his house in kent thanks to the room let tenants. He could head off to any quarter of europe with a EU card for him and the girls without a care - health care taken cared for. As for me being unreasonable, I've agreed to almost every change he's suggested for contact between him and the girls until it got to christmas. Having asked you for advice, you havent' given me any legal support as as to what is legal and right. Sorry
