two weeks ago i found out that my partner is having an affair.
we have two children aged 1 & 3.
we are still living in the family home together but things have become strained, we had a row over money early saturday evening and i left the house.
i returned later to find that my partner had gone and taken the two children with her.
she had driven 166 miles to her parents house and is now staying with them.
is it legal for her to take the children without my permission?
i have been in contact with her today and asked if i can take the children to my parents house for the weekend and return them to her sunday evening.
she has refused this saying that she is fearful that i might not return them, is this legal for ther to do this?
sorry for not getting back to you sooner, i thought you were going to email my work email address.if it is easier you can phone me on ***********
my partner has day to day care of the children
we have not had discussions on who will remain in the home, i asked her if she would go to her parents with the children after the children finished nursery on the 18th of july so we could both reflect on what has happened, but after we had a row she just left on the 28th june without telling me taking the children without my knowledge.
i do intend to return the children after contact, i am a business director and could not look after the children in the week as i have a business to run.
i have not seen my children since she has left on the 28th of June
