The following has happened, man (Manchester) works abroad

Customer Question

Hi: the following has happened, man (Manchester) works abroad in Azerbaijan. Gets a child with local woman. Relations ends and the man takes the 2 year old child they have together home with him. No permission was given by the mother. Father and child got out of the country in a strange way and was removed by UK authorities upon arrival. Now he fights for custody on the 28th of April. What should the mom do for her child?

Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:-Where is the child now?-Has the local authority in the UK issued care proceedings?-Is the mother intending on pursuing the child returning to her care?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The child is in the UK with his father and his custody case starts on 28th of April. We have no idea what the father has done so far since he does not give any information. This includes the authorities. The mother wants her son back as soon as possible via official channels and she needs too know what she should do. An extra problem is that she needs a visa for the UK. How he got the child out of Azerbaijan and into the UK is a mystery but we do know he promissed to return on the 27th of last month.

Thank you - what do you mean by his custody starts on 28 April? Has he obtained a child arrangement order?
