On a practical legal basis there is little that you can do and an application for an injunction would not be viewed kindly by the court as well as being expensive. You wouldnt not get legal aid for this.

Fortunately at 6, yr daughter knows who her mother is.

I would have a word with the ex and possibly refer it to mediation

because this will be confusing and upsetting for the child and isnt in the childs best interest.

Can I help further?

Please bear with me today and over weekend because I will
be online and off-line.

Please don't forget to positively rate my answer service (even if it was not
what you wanted to hear) and I will follow up any further points you raise for

If you don't rate it positively, then the site keep your deposit and I get 0
for my time. It is imperative that you give my answer a positive rating. It
doesn't give me "a pat on the head", "good boy" (like ebay), it is my livelihood!

If in ratings you feel that you expected more or it only helped a little,
please ask me for further info before rating me negatively otherwise I don't
get paid at all for my time and answer.

The thread remains open for us to continue this exchange

HiIn fact whilst it is indeed correct that you should first offer to discuss the matter at mediation in fact if your ex persists in this request you can and should apply to the Court for a Specific Issue Order and you will find the court sympathetic to the view that his request and behaviour is inappropriate and NOT in the best interests of the child Claire
