From what you say he should be applying for a residence order immediately as well as for orders preventing her from removing the children from the area. Whether or not this results in a court battle he has to do this in the interests of the children. If he doesn't she could take the children back to Ireland and it would be mich more difficult to get them back. He has to see a solicitor immediately. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
He has to see a family law solicitor immediately. He cannot do this on his own. Some orders can be got within a matter of days such as an order preventing her from removing the children. A residence order will take longer but the court normally fixes a child welfare hearing within a matter of weeks. I hope that helps. Please leave. Positive rating so that a am credited for my time.
