has wanted to live with me for a couple years, fallen out with mother who has depression (sees psychiatrist) mother doesn't really let her have an opinion, daughter fed up and frustrated and get on better with me as im less strict, but fair. her circle of friends/school is near her mother but I can still manage to do school run as im self employed. Daughter really upset last week when I picked her up and really insists on not going back. letter from ex solicitor says mother still wishes to co parent but wants daughter home by tomorrow 4pm, daughter wants me to fight it, ex wont speak to me but I would have preferred mediation for the 3 of us.
im off to a solicitor tomorrow as ex states only way forward is the legal route. I have my daughter with me and we have gone past the 4pm today deadline that was imposed by her solicitor. They are now preparing to go to court tomorrow whilst im at solicitor. Can a court issue this temporary emergency residence order without me being able to challenge? without my daughter being asked? If they can I need to warn my daughter that she may end up back at mums tomorrow.
