Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
I think I assisted you previously regarding this matter, but you said you wanted to seek enforcement of the order you had, not report the grandparents for child abduction. Is that what you actually want to do?
Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.
I don't need a copy of the application at this stage.
Do you trust the mother to return the child tomorrow?
If you want enforcement of the previous order, you can continue with that application - inform the court of that and state that you do not wish to use the CA as that will likely damage relations between the parties, but that you are concerned enough that a court needs to review the matter so that the mother does not act in this unilateral manner again in the future.
If the child is not returned tomorrow, then I would suggest that the mother is going to ignore all your reasonable requests and you will have no choice but to go to the CA. I can give you the contact details if you need those.
