All the lawyers on their list know the requirements of the Child Abduction Act.
Thank you so much!

Yes I would have thought they would and his mother will still be there no doubt, she'll open his mail too.

I'm not really sure you need a court order as much as permission. A document between the two of you that says you are allowed to emigrate, signed and witnessed may be sufficient. This may save you considerable legal fees, though a formal court order may be more helpful down the road.

But I second the suggestion to contact legal advice (perhaps Reunite.org) for clarification. Not really sure on what is needed in the UK.

(FYI in some cases we've heard of people who were unable to even board the plane without some sort of permission letter or a court order).

We are saying she needs a court order if the father will not give his permission and from what she has posted...he will not.

Hi yes unfortunately he would not give permission if I located him. He's not the obliging type. But thank you for your suggestion all the same.
