Who left the message and does your wife have any ties with another country? IT is a criminal offence to take children abroad permanently without consent from all those with Parental Responsibility for a child or permission from the courts here in the UK, but you may need to be proactive to stop your child being taken abroad if there is a flight risk. Generally speaking if you don''t stand up against threats they will continue. You may need to apply to court for a Prohibited Steps Order to prevent your child being abducted.

Contact with your child is a matter for the family courts rather than the a police. IF you haven''t already done so I would make an appointment with a family solicitor to find out where you stand and what options there are in your circumstances pretty damn quick.

As far as medical treatment is concerned as long as your child''s GP is kept in the loop they can involve the social services if necessary. Admission to nursery can be sorted out later.

Does the solicitor do legal aid work? It would be worth checking out if you are eligible for legal aid here;

legalaidcalculator.justice.gov.uk/calcul...iCalc?execution=e2s1

If you aren''t eligible some solicitors will work on an ad hoc basis eg initially get the ball rolling and then later for advice only or to represent you in court. That would keep the costs down. Alternatively you can self represent if you are prepared to spend time doing some research and form filling. Unfortunately if the flight threats are real you may not have much time to learn which is why it may be worth paying a solicitor to start off with.

Hello,

In addition to sorting out Legal Aid, you can contact any solicitor and get free advice for the first 20minutes or something like that; it depends on the solicitor.

You can also represent yourself and go to Court. You mentioned about your wife taking your daughter out of the country, pleae could you tell me which country and whether you both have dual citizenship?

You are also entitled to speak with the Doctor and check whether your daughter has attended the Hospital or Doctors. No, it is unlikely that your daughter is attending her nursery etc if they are in a refuge centre.

DV is difficult to prove unless there is substantial evidence based on witnesses.

Your daughter is in her mother''s care and at this present time she is responsible. I can understand your worry but please try to remain calm and speak to someone.

You can also phone the free advice line here on wiki.

Let me know if I can answer any further; please try to remain calm.

I believe you would formally serve the parties that you have named in the seek and find order. You might decide to enclose a covering letter ''...the attached order requires you to notify the x county court of Ms X whereabouts and contact details...''.
