It can be kept confidential

please.
So here is the deal. Id like to know what my rights are. Im Icelandic and my children hold Icelandic passports as well as british. I split from my ex, not married, 3 years ago and Ive been trying to move to Denmark, where my parents and siblings live, ever since. My ex is portuguese and also has a british pasport.
My ex doesnt give me permission to move with my children. They live with me and see him everyother weekend. What are my rights here.

Let me see if I can help and please rate 5 stars. As the children are habitually resident in the UK now, you would have to make an application to the court for a specific issue order to move, presumably to Iceland. The form is a C100 - you will need to show to the court that it is in the welfare interest of the children to move; that you are going for genuine reasons and would have a plan to maintain the other parent in the children's lives. I have to help attached a link to a great book which explains in detail the process and how best to go about it - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding/dp/147211910X

Happy to discuss and please rate 5 stars

Could this end in court?
Where do I get the c100 form?

If it can not be agreed between you then it can end in court - hence recommending the book. I attach the form - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-c100-application-under-the-children-act-1989-for-a-child-arrangements-prohibited-steps-specific-issue-section-8-order-or-to-vary-or-discharge

Please rate 5 stars

Does my ex get notified if I fill in the C100 form and send it off?

He will get notified. Yes. I hope this helps and please are 5 stars.

Is it better to go through mediation first? If an agreement is not reached then move on to court?

Yes. It is always better to see if you can agree things. If it doesn't work then court. Please rate 5 stars
