Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
How old are the children? What does the current court order state? If you have a copy, please attach it using the paperclip.
It would be helpful to see the court order.
If you can't attach it, don't worry.
Bear with me, I will type up a response based on what you have said.
If there are safeguarding issues, then your partner is entitled to not return the children to the mother, however as there is already a court order in place, presumably stating that the children live with the mother, then he must apply without delay to the court for a variation of that order, or a prohibited steps order to prevent the mother removing the children from his care whilst the safeguarding issues are investigated.
To apply to the court, for a variation of the original child arrangements order, and or to apply for a prohibited steps order, he will need to complete form C100. There is a fee for the filing of the form which is £215, but for those on low incomes/benefits there is fee remission available, on form EX160.
