simply , the father abducted the kids from UK , the mother issued family court prohibiting the father or his agent to have their passport , the kids' custody transferred to Grandmother ( mother of the father ) by Jordanian law .
now 6 ys elapsed under the care of Grandmother (boys' age now 13ys and 10ys ).The mother left the kids and lives permanently in UAE (Syrian –British)
kids carry dual nationality (Jordanian ) . Due to instability of the region , Grandmother may require British passport to move the kids if needed .
the passport office refused the application done by the grandmother as could be seen as an agent to father ( legally not ,she is custody holder ).
The grandma asking if she could claim public fund while she is Jordan because legal issue pertaining to British kids and enforcing her Jordanian Custody in the UK court ) if so ,is she able to appoint solicitor in her behave acting for the kids .
Dear Clare many thanks
Yes she refused despite against the kids' interest , she has been away from them (except irregular visiting time allowed as per her (she filed a visiting case granted by Jordanian Court , though she has been frequently absent wit no reason hence the court disallowed or stopped the visiting for 6 months) .
The father is working in the UAE, frequent visits to Jordan every 6 weeks to the kids for few days but in daily touch with kids through Skype. of course mother working but nothing to do with kids' raising .the grandma dose every things supported by father financially
,please last point
can she appoint solicotr while in JORADN if she manages the cost ?she can't be physically in the UK! surprisingly I was told by friend if legal mater related to the kids and the quardian has no money (the grandmother ) ,the case would be eligible to puplic fund !
