They are of ages 12, 10, 4 and 2 almost 3. Their father sees them during their holidays sometimes, unless I have to travel to see my husband then he might have them and the care while I'm away would be devided from him/his family to my mum. Aside from that he very rarely sees them but speaks to them every now and then.
My partner lives in America and I have loads of family around America so it won't be like I'll be on my own. Just like I make most of the effort now to ensure the kids see and speak to their dad more then he makes the effort, I would do the same if we were to move abroad. I would ensure that they at least speak to him by telephone or Skype. I would agree for them to visit him during their holidays or him to come and visit them. I strongly believe their dad being a part of their lives whether we are together or not, whether we live close or not, is extremely important therefore I would never prevent them from any kind of contact.
Well they stayed with him for the summer holidays..though my mum had them for a couple of weeks during that time and when they were at their dad's they spent some days/weeks at their cousins. Some time at the end of may I took them to him for a week it was half term and them going to him was only because I travelled for that week and during the summer holidays to be with my husband. Otherwise he wouldn't normally have them. He would probably take them for a night or two.
Yes that shouldn't be a problem. May I know what I could do if its going to court how much of a chance do I have for them to give me consent and how long will all that take. Thank you
