Recently found out my ex has a new partner and has moved in together with our 7 year old son.

No issue with her having a new partner but:

1) she told my son not to tell me about him and that they live in a new house. He told me anyway. However, i dont like that she put him in this position. Its not the first time, she has told him not to tell me when they go abroad. I have asked her multiple times to simply tell me for security reasons (holidays that is) but she just ignores it.

How can i convince my ex to stop lying. Can i take this to court.

2) although im not fussed my ex has moved on i am a bit concerned my son is living with a random man. But i guess there's nothing i can do. Not fussed if he's kind but you never know.

I agree, it’s wrong to put a child in that position, but realistically there’s not a lot you can do about it, that you haven’t already tried.

As far as holidays abroad are concerned, as the resident parent she can take him abroad for up to a month without your permission, unless it overlaps with your ordered time with your son, in that case your contact would take precedence... however, as parents most of us wouldn’t want to prevent our children from having a holiday.

hi,

i think as long as your ex is not stopping you from seeing your child, then better not to rock the boat. avoid trying to fish for information from your child. my ex has done that with our kids. not nice and will make your child feel very uncomfortable and unsettled.
