My name is ***** ***** I shall try and assist. The father should pursuant to the court order return the child to you immediately and this is what the court should say tomorrow. The father should not have removed the child under such circumstances and the caselaw suggests that the child should be returned to you. I have attached a link to a very helpful book on amazon for about a tenner which explains the law - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding/dp/147211910X
Cafcass should also prepare a s. 7 report but the child should be going home to you. Please rate 4 or 5 stars
The police will not bring him back because both parents have parental responsibility. The fact is that the other parent should not have retained the child without bringing the matter to court. As such you can say to the court that the father has breached the order and that you seek the immediate return of the child. This will happen in 99 out of 100 cases. This is what the Court of Appeal says in such cases and the child should thus be immediately returned. The link is to a book which explains all aspects of child arrangements orders as it will probably be helpful for you to have a good understanding of the court process. I want to make things as easy as possible for you in something which must be of great strain to you at this time. Please rate 4 or 5 stars
