Sorry - I was asking about who had the day to day care of the child prior to your daughter going away?
Does her partner work?
If so where does he leave the child during that time?
Has your daughter ever gone away without the child before?

my daughter has the day to day care of the child,her ex partner does work but he finishes work early so he can come home because he is convinced she will not be there when he gets back ,she has given him no inclination she would not be there,my daughter would like to take her child with her when she visits her family in wales to see her grandparents but he just takes the child and does not tell here where he is and refuses to give the child to my daughter when she wants to visit,she has no choice to leave the child there because he disappears with her daughter and will not come back until she has gone,when he is working and my daughter is visiting her family he leaves her in the care of his alcoholic mother who my daughter dislikes this,my daughter just wants whats best ,he will not let her speak with her daughter on the phone and swears at her while the child is there,he is constantly asking money from my daughter and gets nasty when she questions him on where the money is going ,she has given him 420 pounds in the last week and still he is constantly asking her for money,what he is doing witht he money we do not know,my daughter is the childs mother and the legal guardian,please help in this matter
