Please i need to hear something from some professional.
Thank you in advance

Thank you for your question

Since your son has been living in the UK for the last two years it is for the Uk court to decide which country he should live in.

This is despite the fact that he is Greek and that you have just removed him form Greece to bring him back to the UK.

Accordingly if there is a risk that your ex will try and take hime back to Greece without your agreement you can apply to the court here in the Uk for a Prohibited Steps Order to prevent your son being removed from England and Wales

You can also get help from the charity Reunite

Please ask if you need further help
