I just wanted to write an update after I actually got my phone interview with CAFCASS the other day.

It had been two weeks since I received the letter informing me that CAFCASS would contact me, and after reading ibn different places that sometimes they emss up and parties are not interviewed I decided to contact them myself. It was by coincidence that the CAFCASS assigned to my case answered so we had the interview then and there.

Although I was totally unprepared psychollogically, I think it went well. In the end he commented that he can see that my interest is purely about the welfare of the children, which I think is good.

During the interview though, I found out that he had already interviewed the ex who told him nothing about the move to France. Not a single word. He was surprised when I told him that she is already moving furniture and has enrolled the kids to a French school. He was confused as this was not mentioned and he was wondering if she had already filed for a Leave To Remove. he said he will search about it and let me know.

I don''t know how significant it is the fact that she decided to exclude from the conversation such an important detail, but I guess we will find the outcome during the Directions Hearing in August.

Thank you all for listening and for your helpful comments.
