Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Why do they dislike your partner?
When will the 15 year old turn 16?
What have Social Services said?
I am afraid that both of the chidlren are of an age that means that if they refuse to return home neither the Courts nor the police will force them to return.
I am sorry as I know that this is not what you wish to hear
You may also face a problem with Social Services if you are not willing to stop seeing your partner even if the children do wish to return.
I know that this is not what you wish to hear but i can only be honest with you - family mediation is the only option
Also if they do live with their grandmother you will indeed be liable for maintenance
Again I am so very sorry
Please ask if you need further details
