Hi My partner is in hospital this weekend and arranged for the parents of friends of his children to look after his girls for the duration of the weekend. In the contact order that he pursued, this is his allocated alternate weekend with the children. We have since found out that the girls mother has removed the children from the friends' house and taken them home. We have not been notified of this and only found out because one of the girls posted on Instagram that they were with their mother. Is this proper conduct? Can she legally just take them away from the place of care their father placed them for the weekend without notifying him where they now are? I suppose what I am asking is, what is the protocol? Should his wife have notified him that she was now taking the girls? He is not aware that they are no longer at the friends house. Only I know.
