Ex taking kids

(4 Posts)

Hi all, I'm looking for some advice please. My ex is in the army, so he has nowhere to have the kids as he stays with all the single guys in the block. He wants the kids for 2 weeks - I have asked him where will he have the kids and his first response was 'Camping' then 'I'll be staying with friends'. He won't gve me any further information and I'm beginning to worry about where/who they will be staying with.

We've just moved house, kids are 3.5 and almost 2 and are very unsettled. I'm concerned that if he keeps moving them from pillar to post their anxieties will only get worse.

I don't trust him - he's very short tempered with them - to the point of forcefully putting them to bed because they like to get up and wander around at bedtime. We've had SS involved but they've closed the case as he put on a show. He does stuff without thinking - taking them out just before lunch and getting angry because they are grouchy. Taking them on 4 hour drives just to see mates for an hour..

Is there anything I can do?

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks x

If u genuinely don't trust him then u need to see a solicitor. .

2 weeks? Does he have the right to take them for so long?

Is there a court order in place that says he can have 2 weeks? If not then you don't have to agree to anything. They are very young to go away for 2 weeks imo.
