Thanks for your answer. The issue is further complicated as the PWC wishes to move abroad with one child, aged 16, but wants to leave his sister, aged 14, here in UK at boarding school in the care of friends during the weekends.
Can I object to the PWC leaving UK on this basis? Does the PWC need my permission to leave one child here, effectively alone, and does the PWC need my permission before being able to designate a guardian?
yes,but the PWC has not allowed me any contact for many years. I don't see why so called friends should be allowed to look after my child before me though.
Jan 2005, when the kids announced that "mummy says we have a new daddy now". The mother then made up what were proved to be totally false allegations against me, and refused me any further contact. I have applied for contact twice since, (a lengthy process as I am sure you are aware), and the mother has always refused, making up more stories, and in the end I realised it was hopeless. It has never suited the mother to have me in the kid's lives.
I have no idea. The mother has refused to give me any information. She has never given me any info regarding the kids unless threatened with a court order, stating it is none of my business what they do. I only get contacted with demands for money/school fees etc. Incidentally, when she chose a very expensive boarding school for one child, I disputed her choice and took her to court and the judge ruled in my favour, reminding the mother that I had PR and my consent was needed to choose schools, regardless of whether I had any contact with them.
I have just been told he will be staying with "family friends". I do not even have their names.
On a further point, the mother has stated that both kids will attend uni in the US, where the fees are extortionate. Will I be liable to contribute to these, even though it is their unilateral choice to move to US and incur these huge fees? Had they remained in UK, the fees would be a fraction of those in US.
Thanks for your help. Just one more quick question, why would I be liable to pay maintenance whilst my child is at uni but NOT liable to pay the university fees?
