    Hello all,

    so here we are. After five years our youngest son ( 11 )refuses to go to his mother’s house any more. Things did go downhill for months ever since she started her third relationship after separation during last year’s lockdown.  It culminated last weekend, when he refused to return to her because they had a huge row the week before. After a lot of talking he eventually agreed to stay for one night at her house, but she made things worse, when she vented her anger at him and said, “you will burn slowly for this ” and took away all his avenues to contact me. Now  he refuses point-blank to return because he says he feels unsafe.

    So what will happen as I am surely not forcing him to go. Anyway the only means of doing so would be physical force anyway. What is the possible outcome and what do I need to prepare for?

    Thank you for your time.

    Hi,

    Do you have a court order in place? Don’t think it would be right to force the child to go to mum if he doesn’t want to.
