Hi All
If anyone can throw light on this I would be very grateful.
My ex & I went to court in April, as I wanted to move the childen''s school (10 miles away from him). The magistrates ordered that they were to stay where they were. I appealed on the basis that they did not give reasons nor hear/read evidence and yesterday we went before a District judge & I won the right to appeal and we will be sent a date late Aug for a re-hearing.
In the meantime, is the original order "over-thrown" so to say?? i.e. does it mean I could move them now? The reason being that a place has come up at the Secondary School and they will not hold it if I don''t accept it.
If it''s of any relevance, since Dad won''t allow my Daughter to move, she has now lived with me f/t and not seen him for a month.
Thank you x

Sorry but the ruling stands until the appeal is heard, but the good news is a district judge in county court is more able to deal with these issues, i think so anyway.

Thanks dukey

That''s sadened me, and, also, unfortunately, it''s been sent back to magistrates, I would much of preferred a D.Judge as you say.

As they''ve ordered a CAFCASS report also which we get on 21st August, were not in court until the last week in August.

Thanks again, really appreciate your time.
