I have read your previous posts. If you don’t comply with the undertaking, the child’s father can take you back to court to enforce it.
You need to apply to court to release you from the undertaking but it’s unlikely that the court would allow that because it is not unreasonable for the other parent to know when you plan to do this.
Is there a reason that you want to be released?Can you please make sure that you reply on this thread, rather than opening a new one? Thank you.
You may think it the father controlling and it may be the case but it is in the court order and hence, you are stuck with it until such time as released from the undertaking.
The whole of the issue comes down to the word “reasonable”.
If you decide to take something last-minute, then reasonable notice would be when you started to look for something and then confirming when you found it.
It also comes down to the definition of holiday. A long weekend is unlikely to be classed as a holiday.
You are allowed to take a child away for a reasonable period of time without consent but, there is a court order which overrides everything else.
Can I clarify anything else for you even though I know it isn’t the answer you wanted?
