The girls are 7, 5 and 3.
My youngest was injured at 7 weeks old. Their father had previous history of the same thing with his other children and gave up on the girls soon after. I could not prove i was not involved as the time it happend was hard to pin point, so the option i was given was to let my parents have PR or lose them to social services.
This all happend in Australia and we all moved to the uk in November 2013 where my parents live. Neither the girls or I have heard from their father in 2 1/2 years.
There is no court order in this country that we know of, it was supposed to be transfered but we have no evidence it has been. There was only a minimum amount of contact stated in court and due to moving country i had no advice on what to do next. We have had no contact from social services since arriving in the UK.
I currently live in a 3 bedroom flat with my partner, we are both employed full time and have savings and a car.
We have the girls to stay with us every friday and saturday night and during the day, plus a week here and there in school holidays. We are at my parents house every night for dinner, bath and bed routine. I am involved with all decisions made regarding them, parents evening and doctors appointments.
Is there a way to find out for sure?
My PR was removed in Australia, the girls were in foster care for nearly 2 years whilst going through court and they transferd PR in court to my parents in Australia.
There was talk of the uk giving my parents a "special gardianship order" but they never followed through.
My parents would love the girls to be living with us, but we want to prove they can legally. We would all hate to do the wrong thing and lose the girls.
Thank you. My partner has moved here from Australia, we all want to move back there once we have the girls, do you think there would be any issues in doing this?
You say "To permanently remove the children from the UK jurisdiction you just need permission of everyone with parental responsibility. If all agree then there is no issue" when we have PR, will my parents lose PR?
