Thank you for your question.
Are the children staying with your daughter in Scotland? How long have they stayed here?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

6 weeks

A court in Scotland and take a certain protective measures in respect of the children, and the mother, even if there are court proceedings in England.
It is not the law in Scotland that she has to be here for one year before she can deport. That is just rubbish.
I suggest your daughter sees a solicitor immediately with a view to getting temporary orders preventing the father from interfering with the care of the children or from approaching her.
The solicitor will also be able to liaise with Cafcass and the English courts, via an English agent if necessary.
