I'm an english man in Poland where I've a 3year old girl (brit passport holder, uk born). Her Polish Mother and family has closed ranks and I need some help (not the expensive kind) on her rights and mine in relation to our contact and immigrating to maintain contact with her. I'm running out of options.
Province/Country relating to question : Poland
I can't get residence, I can't understand the laws or language. I'm being taken advantage of from all angles. I need legal advice
Thank you for you inquire.
You should first need to know that as a British citizen you benefit of right of free movement under EU law. This means you have the right to reside in Poland if you work, study or are self-sufficient. To be considered self-sufficient you need to have sufficient resources, not to become an unreasonable burden on the Polish social assistance system and you have comprehensive health care insurance in place.
If you are on speaking terms with your future ex wife, I would suggest that you agree in writing on your visitation rights. This agreement should then be signed before a notary.
If you are not on speaking terms, then you would need to get legal advice from a local lawyer. You can find a list of English speaking lawyers in Poland at the following website:
