I donít think it is right to turn others threads into a debate of the rights or wrongs of taking children away from 1 parent so iíll start one of my own.
We have 2 threads running at the minute, 1 by a father looking for advice on how to keep his children in the UK and the other by a mother looking to take her children away from their father. While the father is getting loads of support the mother is being attacked, why is that so?
The father could be a right arse and just looking at ways to get back at his ex, but nobody has said that or asked any questions in that direction, we are just happy to offer positive support (the way it should be) But the mother..... how dare she want to start a new life!!!!
Anyone with children going to Australia are taking them away from family, friends and their not being questioned or attacked, but somehow taking them away from a father WOW you canít do that. Not interested in how good or bad the father is, itís morally wrong!
I can only talk for myself but we looked at it from all angles, are we doing the right thing? We spoke to our son about it, we tried to talk to Tracyís ex and he wasnít interested, it wasnít as straight forward as stuff him lets go just to piss off Tracyís ex. So when it come to asking questions on PIO, things like ďwhat about the fatherĒ werenít helpful, we had already thought about that.
How many people have really thought about the impact the move will have on their children and family members? I bet people that have and are trying to take their children away from their other parent have thought long and hard about it.
IMHO if you have no support or real advice to offer then donít say anything, because youíre not helping!
Taking children away from another partner is a very stressful thing to do, itís a long process thatís very costly and I know myself we had loads of questions about the processes involved and not to many people would offer advice in the open because of the grief they would get off other members so it was all done via PM.
