Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm:

-is there a court order regarding the children, if so what?

-how old are the children?

we are currently in the process of agreeing childcare arrangements via solicitors once my husband moves out at the end of may. There is no court order.The children are 6 and 7
Expert:  Harris replied 5 months ago.

Thanks for confirming. When the children are with the father, if it is unsupervised contact, the father will be able to take the children to wherever and whomever he wishes unless there are specific restrictions in the order or agreement as this will be seen as interference with his time with the children and he would have a right to refuse you such information.

My question was 'do I have a right to know where and who with' I realise he is able to go wherever with whoever but can I legally insist that I am told these details rather than be told by him that I have no right to know any details

Unfortunately, no you have no such right unless it is specified in a court order.
