This is going to appear critical so I will apologise in advance.

"I applied behind his back for a renewal".

You also give him a couple of weeks notice of a holiday you had already booked and is presumably happening in a school holiday he is expecting to see his children,

I don''t know your history and I''m sure you had good reasons but if my ex did this then I would object on principle too. I would feel like someone was taking the p***.

I hope you get your family holiday.

I could be about to encounter the same problem. My children are 15 & 16 and I think my ex will refuse to agree to an overseas holiday. Did you fill the form in yourself? I''ve looked at it on line (C100 I believe) and it asks whether you have attended mediation? How did you get the hearing so quickly and did you use a solicitor.

I hope you don''t mind me asking just want to get it clear in my head what I will need to do. Don''t really want to use a solicitor as I have spent so much money already on the divorce.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Well court papers have been served to his lordship this evening,he told the process server that he couldn''t get time off work at such short notice....
The man is self employed,teaching in schools and village halls,most of his work is afternoon and evenings,and most stops during school holidays.
Anyone know what happens if he doesn''t turn up at court?

Well the judge wished me a happy well warned holiday..... much to exes disgust that the judge was not interested in the photos he had cyber forensically lifted off my old mobile phone.
Sadly we will still not be Travelling as my eldest passport is still "missing".
One small victory over a nasty control freak, who has already warned me that I will regret starting the war.
Bring it on sir.you made yourself look a fool today, and I will make sure you are seen for the bully you are in court another day.

Sorry about your holiday. But at least the judge saw him for what he is.

My ex is just the same. He''s refusing to sign a passport application. He went so far as to hide our oldest sons passport last year because he hasn''t had a holiday himself.

It''s all an out control, they are not thinking what''s best for the children
