Not sure if this has been asked but I can''t find it.

The ex has taken the kids on holidaqy in the UK, I have booked and paid for as she said it should be ok to take them myself and the kids were aware she has now came back from her holiday and now saying that I can''t.

Myself and my Girlfriend do argue but it''s a learning curve for us both and we are on and off but more on than anything else.

Is there anything I can do?

I think you need to be more clear in your post before anyone can give you a clear answer.

From what i can gather you are saying that you have booked and paid for a holiday for your children, your girlfriend and yourself with your exes permission. Since she has been on holiday herself and returned (with the kids?) she is now saying you cant take the children on holiday.

I''m not sure what the reference to your current relationship is about. I''m going to guess this is the reason your ex has provided for not letting you take you children on the holiday?

Are you taking the children abroad or within the UK? How do your children feel about your relationship with your girlfriend? How old are they?

There is stacks on holidays but everyones situation is different. Whats your current status vis a vis contact arrangements? How was the holiday agreed between the two of you (ie verbal or written) how old are the children and is the holiday in the UK or out? Whats the reason given for now saying they cant go? How soon is holiday?

I suspect maybe the kids have passed this info on to your ex?
She wouldn''t necessarily know about the ups and downs of your relationship, but the kids might, it might have been a topic on hols?
If you have these arrangements in writing just refer to it. If it does come out this is the reason why, you will have to deal with it, mor so with the kids.
