My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How old is your son and what contact do you usually have with him?
What objection does your ex have to the trip?

My son is 6, I have him every other wkend friday to Sunday , and every Tuesday for tea. I've recently taken him on holiday for a week and have done many times. Her objection is am taking him out of school a week early than school hols, an will affect his education but I've been in to school to acomadate for that, such as work 4 him to do at home before we go away and also a project whilst we are away to incorporate what he is doing at school.

Hi
As a starting point you will need to try and use Family mediation (www.familymediationhelpline.co.uk) to negotiate the matter - this is a requirement prior to issuing proceedings.
If that fails you can apply to the court using a form C100 - available here

The fee is £215.
Be sure to get the school to confirm their agreement in writing.
Please ask if you need further details
