Thank you. And thank you for confirming the location.
If the father of the child is not from the area, then this will have been discussed by social services and justified in the making of the order. In this case there's little she can do at the stage to prevent him from taking her child to his home location, even if this is in a different area.
However, if he is from the local area and the threat to move away is something the court was not aware of, and this will prevent planned contact between the child and mother, then she can apply for an emergency "prohibited steps order" asking the court to rule that the child not be removed from the local area so as to maintain the relationship with her mother at this time, though "living with" her father.
This would be on the form c100, here:
She would need to contact the court when it opens at 9am and make it know that an emergency application needs to be made.
I hope that this helps.
Do remember that I can only give you my opinion.
Another lawyer may have a different opinion. Litigation needs at least 2 parties and neither goes to court expecting to lose.
Nonetheless, one of them does, even though they have been told by their respective legal advisers that they have a good chance of success.
If there was a black-and-white answer to every legal problem there would be no need for anything to ever proceed to court!
I am glad to help.
