Thank you for confiirming that for me.
You hold parental responsibility for your children. Your ex cannot move the children abroad without your permission or the permission of a court.
If your ex did take the children abroad withouth your permission - then she could be charged with chid abduction - which if found guilty couud be imprisoned for up to 7 years.
If you think that your ex is likley to move imminenty - without seeking your permission - then you need to apply to your local family court urgently for a Prohibited Steps Order to prevent her from doing this.
To do this you complete form C100 and take this to your local family court and ask to see a family court judge. There is a court fee of £215.
In the alternative - of she isnt planning to move straight away - you should refer to family mediation first and then to court.
The court will consider whether it is in the childrens best interest as to whether or not to approve the move. If this impacts on their time with you and also disrupts their lives - then the courts may not approve her request. The recent case law does not approve of a disruption to them seeing an absent parent.
