Hello,

You should apply for a prohibited steps order to prevent your child from being taken out of the UK without your consent.

You should call the police immediately if you feel there is imminent risk of your child being taken out of the UK without your consent.

Hope this helps
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Thanks. As his father is involved do I have the right to prohibit him from taking the child? Do I legally have a case?
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 2 years ago.
Yes, you have the right to stop the father taking the child away if it is not in the best interests of the child.

Yes, you have a case.

All the best -Please leave feedback

Where do I need to start? Will this protect him at any uk boarder?

You may inform the police about the risk of your child being abducted so that they can put an alert out at all UK Borders.
All the best
