Children being taken 3 hours away

New Member Registered

My ex-wife is moving 3 hours away to live with her new boyfriend and taking our 3 children (13, 11,11) with her. She now expects me to meet about an hour away to collect the children after work each Friday and then drive them over two hours to a drop-off point to return them. I don't see this as fair and it will seriously impact my relationship with them as realistically they won't want to come all the time as they will want to play sports at weekends. Is there anything I can do? I am also worried about the added stress and cost.

am sorry to hear this. some parents decide to split the travel and meet half way in these situations. If you think the move is no good for children, you could take legal route to try to prevent the move. There is an order you could apply for, called PSO (prohibited steps order).
