Awan-Legal : Unless the father has a specific residence order from the court, he cannot take the children abroad without their mother's consent.

Awan-Legal : She should therefore explain to him that he cannot take the children without her consent and if he is still adamant/she is worried, she should apply to the court for an injunction/court order to stop him doing this as above.
Awan-Legal : Your local citizens advice bureau should be able to put her in touch with somebody who can help her with this.
Awan-Legal : I hope that helps.
Awan-Legal : Please rate my answer, thanks.
