Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Do you not wish to take the child abroad?
Was the wording not agreed at Court?
Have you shown a copy to the Barrister who represented you?
What time will she be spending with her father?
So you would not be able to take her away other than with his agreement in any event?
In fact the Court does indeed have the power to do this even if no Application has been made.
can you send me a copy of the Order - and does it say that the child lives with you at all other times - when she is not with her father?
In that case the only difference between the Order that you thought you would get, and the Order that you have got is that each of you can take the child out of the oc**try DURING THE TIME SHE IS IN YOUR CARE without notifying the other - provided she is back in time for handover.
That in the end is the only difference.
Even if the Order had said that the child lived with you alone you could not take the child out of the country for 28 days as the time that she has to spend with her father would not allow this.
This is simply a matter of wording - it does not change the actual position - your daughter still resides with you and also spends time with her father.
The Holiday provision is in fact designed to ensure that your ex cannot prevent you from going to Poland - provided it is not for more than 21 days - and indeed if you wished to take her on a flying visit at the weekend you can still do so
I do understand that this is all confusing - and remain happy to look at the actual order if you would like me to
That is up to you I will happily review it for you if the above does not cover your queries
It is possible to apply t vary it - but unless something unexpected happens not for at least a year
Yes that would indeed be a good reason!
You are welcome - and that is an excellent plan
