I want to take my kids to northern Ireland at Christmas to be with my family. My ex says he's going to take out a prohibitive steps order. I live in England. Can he stop me? Do I need his permission? Tia
Dose he have a court order with Christmas in his favour? If he doesn't then why would a court not allow you to take them? Would he really waste his time +money or is he a control freak who is bluffing?
I was told you can take them away for up to 28 days without permission. My ex refused to allow me to take my daughter to germany to see family; i took her anyway. Got stopped at the airport cos he called up that i was abducting her 😂😂 did a 20 day visit & flew back no problems.
What's his reasoning for not allowing the kids to go???
See we don't have anything in place, no court order, no residency order. My solicitor said unless there is specific instructions or residency issues then the 28 days stands. He does have full PR too. As long as you can prove you intend to bring them back within that time - so have a return flight booked for example - you're okay.
Not sure how long a prohibitive steps order would take, but i guess if he took one out he'd have to explain why he didn't want you to take them...which could mean he wouldn't get one if he's just being a dick
I would err on the side of caution as surely the stress of all that drama is the last thing you need around Christmas. My ex and I have shared care and he's refused to allow any flexibility to our order that would allow me to travel to visit my family abroad. I have applied for a Specific Issue Order and have a hearing in a couple of weeks.
