I am a British citizen...
I am a British citizen, 46 years old, my wife is Russian citizen, 26 years old and my stepdaughter is Russian, 6 years old, they both are here in the UK on a temporary residence permit expiring on may/2017, my son is 1 year old and he has been born here in the UK and is a British citizen.Submitted: 2 years ago.Category: UK Family Law
I own a house on a shared ownership scheme and I have a mercedes car 2015, and some savings.
One day I took the house keys off her and she went out with our children for a walk around 1 pm and never show any signs until 8 at night and did not wanted to say where they were.
I did call the police and explained the situation and that I took her house keys because we had an argument, they explained me they will search for her, an hour later no updates
I was scared that she might have taken my son off my life and I looked for my son's passport so I kept it with me.
I was detained and taken to the police station for 24 hours, being interviewed and later release on conditional bail.
my wife has declared that I have hit her with a towel on the head in one occasion and in another occasion a slap on a shoulder and that I have broken her laptop, besides that she says that I have given her no access to money and friends and that I was controlling her life; she has added 3 photographs for every incident, for the first one a bruised on her upper arm slightly although she had declared I hit her on her head; the second photograph is the broken laptop, and the 3 one is a mark on one of her shoulders that looks like a hand slap.
On the interview I have declared that regarding the assault accusation, I have declared that we were having an argument and it was a moment when both our tempers were tense so I had throw the towel towards her unintentionally, I did also explained that I did apologized to her for that.
regarding her second photograph about the broken laptop she has declared that I did that right after an argument. in fact we had an argument that day but then I went downstairs to a room were I was alone and accidentally I moved her laptop and fold down from the table to the floor and the screen was broke, so I did apologized to her for that and I took the laptop for repairing and this was not possible to replace the screen so I bought her a new one and transferred all her data into the new one.
The last photograph I didn't remember that incident happening so I declared that I did not know what happened that day, she said I did that in front of our daughter in the table.
I explained that I would have never done anything like that in front of our children as I have been always the one asking them that we do not have to have an argument in front of the children.
I have never ever have a problem with justice and never detained or accused of anything in my life, this is the first time I am facing this kind of situation which is very shocking and stressful.I have also explained that I gave her a bank card nearly after she came over to the country so she has acces to money, besides there was always over 1 thousand US dollars or pounds at home on a place she always knew and she could take that in case needed, I gave her regular money every two to 3 weeks for her to spend on anything she wanted, me no questioning anything.
and that every friday we all go to a supermarket where I buy everything we need for the week, and also during the week I ask her if she needs anything so I get also extra things during the week.in regards ***** ***** I pushed her to meet people and get to know mum's clubs, she met russian speakers mum;s club, school mum's clubs, english as foreign language lesson's club and also meet very often almost everyday with friends she had made which I do not know who they are and where do they live, she barely talk about them.
I have introduced her to my friends and went out with few, couple of weedings too and other social events.Now that I have been released on conditional bail, I have been told not to contact her direct or indirectly, and not to get closer to our daughter's school, and they gave me a date to go back to the police station, next month.My questions are:
during the unconditional bail period (30 days), can I ask them to give me access to see my children and spend time with them??what could be the outcome of this? would I be prosecuted, fine? how does that work?what will happen with my house and assets, everything is on my name only and we have been married and living together for 1 year and a half approx.?I really don't know where I stand now, so please any advice is very welcome.
