Is there a written agreement or a court order in respect of the children?
OK, your daughter should apply for a residence order and she may want to withhold contact meantime. If he won’t settle to a routine the court’s intervention will be needed and she should consult with a local family lawyer as soon as possible. Typically the lawyer will write to home in the first instance to try to reach a settlement but court action will follow if necessary.
