Thank you for your response.
Please do accept my apologies for my delay in responding to you today.
First thing you would need to do is to notify your local childrens social services. This has to happen whenever someone looks after a child that is not thier own for more than 28 days.
Then you need to apply to court for a Child Arrangements Order. This is an order to confirm that your grandson will live with you. This order would grant you parental responsibility for your grandson. This is important because there would need to be someone in the UK whom holds parental responsibility for him and is able to make decisions in relation to his health and education.
Given that this would be agreed and that the father is moving in 6 weeks then you should make the application to the court marked Urgent. Normally you are to refer to mediation before you can apply to court but there is no dispute here but you still need Parental Responsibility and a Child Arrangements Order is the way to get this as Parental Responsibility cannot be delegated by the father.
You apply to court on this Form:
The application goes to your local family court.
There is a court fee of £215 but you may be eligible for a reduction or remission depending on the circumstances.
Detail in the form the date that father is leaving and that a hearing is required before that date. The father will receive a copy and he will have to attend also to confirm that it is agreed that the order should be made in your favour.
