Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
I am very sorry to hear about your dilemma, but will do my best to provide you with advice and guidance on what to do next. Are there any court orders in place for the children? How old are the kids?
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
If there are no current orders in place you will need to apply to the court for a specific issues order for the father to return the child to your care. You can do so on form C100 - it will be an urgent application. Cost is £215, but if you are on benefits/low income, complete form EX160 for fee remission.
The court will decide after hearing from both of you and doing background checks what to do next. The police are unlikely to assist as there are no current court orders in place.
