If i were you i would give her permission to have her holiday so as you are not looking spiteful.
Then ask her for permission in writing is she doesn't give you the go ahead then get the C100 in, probably best not to say you have booked the holiday.
She will look spiteful and as if she is using your kid as a weapon in front of a judge.
I would also give permission because it's a holiday for your son and he shouldn't get caught up in the middle of this, and doing so without pre-conditions might then just give your ex enough leeway to re-think her own refusal. If she doesn't then, you look to be the more reasonable one if it does go to court, and that will help your case.
