Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Which Court is dealing with the matter?
For clarity - the children live with you in Scotland?
So the hearing on 23rd August is actually to determine where the case should be heard?
What exactly have you been ordered to disclose?
Which parts are you anxious about your ex knowing
When did your ex make this latest applictaion - and why Reading?
I am and I am trying to understand why the Judge accepted this when the chidlren have been in Scotland for nearly two years
Did the Judge give any indication of why he thinks it is appropriate
Sorry - some confusion here ( I apologise)
When did the 2015 application conclude?
Right - so there have been proceedings in Scotland already?
There is no way that the children matter should be being dealt with in Reading when the children are in Scotland and have been for over a year.
When the Judge was asked this what did he say?
We have wandered away a bit - can I just check - what is the current position with regard to the release of your informtaion - has it happened or is it on hold?
The first thing to say is that I can see no justification for the matter being dealt with in Reading given that the Habitual Residence of the Children is in Scotland.
This is indeed actually dealt with in case law in 2012 - the case of W-B (a child)
It is reported here
So I believe that the Jurisdiction issue is one you should win (or appeal if not)
With regard to the Order made regarding the release of information if the rleease of that information will put you at risk then it needs to be appealed
However if it is simply relating to informtaion that will be needed for the Fact finding then there is no point in doing so as it will have to be released at some point
If you need further details can you give me some idea of exactly what is to be disclosed
