Things are a bit complicated between myself and baby’s Dad. I am the full time carer for our son and Dad is all of a sudden putting off signing the permission note to take our son on holiday. When I booked the holiday abroad I asked him before going ahead with it and he was happy for us to go. If he keeps up this new stance what are my options? Surely he has to give a valid reason as to why we can’t go? Especially when our son would be in my care that week anyway?
No I’m not going through the courts, we are currently sorting out mediation. I got permission over a phone call- never thought it would become an issue! I don’t think he would go as far as that (hopefully!) So do I still have 28 days without consent as rp or would that just be something they’d honour in court? Many thanks x
I instigated mediation and have always kept my cool and been very fair and still want to be. I have got a written account of everything. I think he is just a bit bitter and hasn’t been the best with arrangements (cancelling here and there). It is in Europe, only a couple hours flight at the start of October. My son has a double barrelled surname (so partially) and no it would not impact on any time during the week for contact but weekends are yet to be sorted through mediation. As for our arrangements now it doesn’t. X
