Hi Thank you for your question. My name is Clare and I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
In fact she cannot remove the children from the Country without either you agreement or an order from the court.
If she does wish to move back then she will have to convince the court that it would be in the best interest of the children to make the move and show how she will ensure ongoing contact with you
There are more details here
hi clare - thank you
If you think there is a risk that they will simply be taken away
you should consider applying for a Prohibited Steps Order through the courts
This is done using a Form C100
if she were to take the children abroad, what would stop her? she went back to argentina this summer for a holiday with the children and i don't think immigration asked for any evidence of my permission?
That is why you may wish to consider a Prohibited Steps Order
If she does take the children you can apply for their return
The Charity Reunite has more details
I hope it doesn't come to this, but would the prohibited steps order mean that airport authorities are informed and will prevent her travelling with the children? Or is it more likely to be the case that I would have to pursue her through the Argentinian courts to return the children?
If you have a Prohibited Steps Order then an alert can be sent out - the Reunite website will give more details
You are most welcome - I hope all goes well
