14, the court will take note of what the child wants. Indeed it is unlikely
that at age 14, the court would order the child to live with his mother against
correct way of doing this is for the child to return to Liverpool and for the
father to make an application to court for residence for the child to live with
the mother (who seems more concerned for her benefits than anything!) will take
legal advice and realise that based upon the fact you have given, she has no
prospect of the child continuing to live with her if this ends up in court.
thing that might focus her mind would be if the father agreed that if she let
the child come back to Milton Keynes, he will not pursue her through the CSA
for maintenance, something which he is entitled to do if the child lives with
that there is no court order, the child can simply stay with the father but if
the mother takes exception to that as seems likely, she will scream abduction and
may get legal aid.
child returns, and the father makes an application, neither party will get
legal aid and that might give her a little more mind focusing.
is almost certainly not a do-it-yourself job and the father would be well
advised to see a solicitor who can advise in depth having taken full
instructions on past circumstances
