do I need her permission to do this as to when it can happen...do i need to do it thru a solicitor
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Then you will need to negotiate with your ex and obtain her agreement - or obtain a Court Order within divorce proceedings which allows for this to happen

The starting point is to try and discuss matters with her using Family mediation

Please ask if you need further details
