Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
Which part of the Uk are you in
Is that where the children are as well?
What was the wording of the Order that you obtained?
How old are the chidlren?
The kids are 11 and 7.
The wordings were that the defendant should return the two children immediately to the father or his representative
What steps have you taken to recover them since the order was made?
I sent my Aunty but my ex wife still declined. That's all we have done. There was a sitting where her counsel was told to comply or the client would face contempt charges
Have you asked the Police to assist you?
Not yet. Can you give me a comprehensive position
The first step is to ask the police to accompany YOU to go and collect the children.
You should show them the Order - and they should be willing to assist you.
If they refuse then you need to make an ex parte applictaion using this form
Form an Order requiring the Police to help you recover them.
Please ask if you need further details
And does she have to comply with the order first before she can even apply for setting aside of the order
No I am afraid not
Would her application have any impact on the court order
If she applies to set it aside and is successful then yes.
