They should be for communication comes to the children. Especially if they are going to move. I need to be information.
Sounds to me as though this is coming close to a need for intervention by the court. Before going to court it is always preferable to attend mediation. That is needed in any event before making an application to court. It does not have to be much and could simply be your son going to one mediation session on his own and thereafter applying to court. However, she could be invited to mediation. If she does not, then he can make an application to the court.
He can apply for a specific issue to stop her moving (or moving the children’s school)or a child arrangement to set out what the contact provision will be and how it will work if they move. It can also include provision for communication.
It is always based on the facts of the case. All the court have to go off from a legal point of view is a welfare checklist from the children act. This says that the court have to consider the following.
(a)the ascertainable wishes and feelings of the child concerned (considered in the light of his age and understanding);
(b)his physical, emotional and educational needs;
(c)the likely effect on him of any change in his circumstances;
(d)his age, sex, background and any characteristics of his which the court considers relevant;
(e)any harm which he has suffered or is at risk of suffering;
(f)how capable each of his parents, and any other person in relation to whom the court considers the question to be relevant, is of meeting his needs;
(g)the range of powers available to the court under this Act in the proceedings in question.
