as soon as possible we feel that she will just disappear not that we are aware her mother and step father and her sister live local
Expert:  Clare replied 12 months ago.
She has no right to remove the child from the Uk without the agreement of your son or an Order from the CourtYour son should make an immediate applictaion for a Prohibited Steps Order so that if she does try and go he can ask for a Port Alert to stop her.It will also make it easier to recover the child from Ireland - and his ex would face Child Abduction charges if she did try.I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further detailsClare

Thank you so very much the Mother has stopped also me and my husband from seeing the child due to the fact that I took the child a birthday card from her father to celebrate the childs second birthday, this card was returned to myself with a threatening message that she would stop us from seeing the child if we acted on my sons wishes, needless to say we have not seen the child from that day to the current day, she is now saying that the child does not know her father, and will not know who he is. This is not by my sons choice hence why he has taken the mother to court. Also that my son cannot look after the child due to the child taking a tumble whist she was at our home, she received a small cut to her forehead, no bruising and my husband and myself treated the child and my husband is a ex fire fighter and a trained first responder. Thanking you once again.

Please do not worry - none of those will be seen by the court as a reason why there should be no contact
