british family law???

I'm divorced. No 'legal' child arrangements but a signed and witnessed agreement that I could move over here and that he would access.
We also have financial consent order.

Now, last week it became clear that my ex had accured a lot of debt, and is a complusive liar, a flight risk and still suicial.

Anybody know where I stand with this agreement which needs to be ammended. Do I need a lawyer, and a british one?

Help

Re: british family law???

have you talked to your ex husband about it?

You only need a lawyer if you can't agree something between yourselves.

Re: british family law???

You should have had your child access agreement made in the UK courts. This is not expensive and does not need legal representation. In the agreement access conditions can be defined and if these are broken, access can be denied/altered.

This will depend on the age of the children. The court may ask their opinion if they are old enough (say 12+). But if your are here and he is the UK, then this can be a problem. You could phone the court and ask for a hearing and go over and attend. This is most likely in a private room with both parties and the Court Registrar (a would-be judge) who can make a new access/custody agreement.

I am presuming you don't want your children to see you ex when on a bender. Debts and lying are not usually (sadly) taken as reasons for a fther not seeing his child(ren)...

Re: british family law???

She is 3. And my main worry is that he will have another...whatever... when she is with him, and ..... well. She is three, so can't do anything if he does run off with her, or run off and leave her alone.

Debt and mental illness aside, I have no wish to stop her seeing him. I just want to make sure that visits are supervised and that she is safe.
