Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will try and assist you.
Please may I ask:
- how old is the child?
- are there any court orders in place?
- why do you think that the father has taken the passport - do you consider that he might be wanting to remove the child from the jurisdiction?
It was nice to speak with you.
This is the for that you need to make the urgent application to court for return of the passport.
The court fee is £155
You may be eligible for a fee remission or waiver depending upon your means. See this link
- the planned trip
- his confirmation that he has the passport but will not return the same
- how he is planning to frustrate the holiday
It may well be that even though you have an order to say that the child lives with you and you can travel for up to 28 days without his permission, he may now try to argue that as you are visiting family you intend not to return. If he does this be clear that you do intend to return, your son is at school, your employment, home etc.
