Have you applied for Child Maintenance from him?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No please ..is there any way I can take the passport from him as well please?I don't know his current address so am not sure how to apply for the child maintenance
Expert:  Clare replied 1 month ago.

The only person entitled to apply for the benefits is your ex.

You can apply to the Child Maintenance Service for them to assess Child Maintenance

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I really appreciate your help but if I may ask how do I also take their passports from him please ?
Expert:  Clare replied 1 month ago.

You will have to make a separate application under the Children Act - but if you do do your ex may use it to apply for contact with the children

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I don't understand the application for contacting my children can u explain a little further please
Expert:  Clare replied 1 month ago.

You can apply to the Family Court for a Specific Issue Order for the return of the passports using a Form C100

However if you make that application then at the same hearing your ex can apply for a Court Order allowing him to have contact with the children
