advice required - mother wants to move to UK with my son


Recommended Posts

I don't know. The thought that a gay lawyer and a bloke who can only form meaningful relationships with dogs feel they know better than a child's mother what might be best for that child? Exactly! If a court order is required I bet this mother will get one at the drop of a hat.

The law is simple. I'm dealing with one the other way round. I have a short opinion I drafted for the Courts in England on what Manx courts might do if the English Courts agreed to allow a child to le

Buy a bunkbed with a slide built into it. Then ask him where he wants to live.

Thanks again.

 

On a side note, since when should a persons sexual orientation (or beliefs/race etc.) have anything to do with giving good advice? That was all I originally asked for and that's what I have been given, for which I am extremely grateful.

and, ignoring the gratuitous comments, I made it clear that OP and ex partner should try and do it themselves without lawyers and then mediate.

 

I pointed out law and prohibited steps orders were atom bombs not to be used.

 

All I have done is tried to explain what the pitfalls are and what the framework is. I certainly never suggested any opinion or solution of what might be in the best interests of the child. That is for mother and father to agree, or mediate or, as very last resort, for a court to determine.

 

TSM your posts have been reported. I will take absolutely no part in the moderating decision making process on that, although I understand you wont believe me.

Stayingover....You say your son wants to stay here, have you explained this to his Mother and appealed to her for your son to remain on the island, again don't use your child as a weapon to attack as this obviously undermines a child's self-confidence but if you appeal to her more reasonable and logical nature then one would hope she would be more accommodating.

 

As a child of divorce and the tug-of-war that ensues I can ensure you that there is very little more damaging than seeing/hearing your parents fight.

I know he's not saying that. I'm just saying it should have nothing to do with the law. At this stage at least.

No, you weren't. Unless everbody else can see different words to me. You can be unnnecessarily scathing at times.

That would be my approach, and surely his establishment at school and with his friends must count for a very great deal in any discussion. I know what you said about the situation OP, but do please search out the better nature within her, even if you need a microscope to find it.

You fucking what, mate? What has he been reported for, exactly? Saying something you disagree with? Fucking lawyers...

Matt, Woolley.

 

I too was subject to watching my parents fall out and subsequent divorce (messy to say the least) and the last thing I will do is see my boy put through the same. That said - I don't think they have invented a microscope powerful enough to find my ex's 'reasonable, logical and better nature' yet!!

 

We are due to have a face to face discussion in the next couple of days and many comments on here have echoed my own thoughts regarding his schooling/friendships etc. so all I can do just now is see how this meeting goes and then work from there.

 

thanks again everyone (well....nearly everyone)
