I have lots of contact with my children. I live between spain and england as have businesses in both countries. The children (since my ex and I separated 3 years ago) have stayed with me every school holiday (either in Spain or UK) and some weekends in between the holidays depending on time off my work. Recently my ex asked me to have the children permanently as she has depression and seeing a psychiatrist so from the 2nd of May this year I have had the children full time in Scarborough and will have them full time until September so my ex can sort herself out. From September my ex wants to move the kids back to Birmingham but I want to stop this as they were not happy there the last time and I could take care of them full time in Scarborough so they carry on at there current school. Thank you,Darren
They are 4 and 7 years old. Recently the contact with there mother is only 2 days since the 7th of May 2014. Before this the children lived with there mother at their grandparents full time.
Another part of my concern is on top of the depression my ex is drinking a lot and has been in hospital for drinking to excess. This is why her marriage broke in the first place and now she is trying to get back with her husband and for this reason she wants to move back to Birmingham. Thank you
Thank you Clare that is very helpful.
Just one more question, this is not what I intend to do but it may arise in the future. My business in Spain is going well and I may have to spend more time there in the future. In your experience what are courts like with moving children out of the country but of course staying in Europe based on the circumstance we have spoken about?
Thanks again, kind regards, Darren
