Hi im hoping you can give me some advice please.
me and my ex partner split up last year and have an 8 year old son. The split has been quite hard on our son, and as a result is very sensitive.
My ex through out the last 10 months has said he was single, so it came a big shock when he announced just last month that he has been in a serious relationship for 6 months and had introduced our son to her. She has a son also.
We have just been to court as he was on not on the birth certificate (his choice) and therefore no parental respoisibilty. At court i agreed to a lot of the things he was demanding. However he wants to take our son on holiday for a week with his new girlfriend and her son. I have said no, as 1) i dont know this girl and 2) i think its too soon.
My solicitor said it would probably go in his favor and would be allowed to take our son on holiday. I am on no circumstances going to allow this to happen, even if the court says he can. Maybe next year if they are still together then i would allow them to do so.
What would happen to me if the court said he could go but i refuse to let him go? someone mentioned that i could be fined or even end up in prison for a month.
during the 10 years of which me and my ex were together he had never wanted to do any of the family stuff, so i guess that hurts. My ex has asked to take our son on holiday to holland to see his family (just him and my son) and i have agreed to this.
Like i have said my son is very sensitive and finds it hard that me and his dad are not together anymore. Am i being unreasonable when i say its still too early for him and his new parnter to take our son on holiday?
