Topic started by mummyto2

I have been seperated from my ex for 14 months now. We have a 2 year old.
I have been in a new relationship now for 8 months.
Ex and I live 150 miles apart (his move) and he sees the child for 1 weekend a month for 2 nights, again..his choice.

He has been informed by me, last year, that i am in a new relationship, but although made it aware that he realises i have moved on he has not asked or mentioned anything about my new partner.

We were never married but he does have joint PR due to being on birth cert.

There are 2 questions i have.

1)My new partner and i are discussing moving in together. I have told ex about this, and as yet he has given no response. Is there anything legal i need to know about this? Can he stop me doing so? what problems may i face?

2)If we decide to go on holiday outside of England, do i need to ask ex's permission? What if he says no? I have been bullied and controlled by him before we split, and i still feel like he has control over my life. We were never married and it makes me SO mad that he has this control.

Any help gratefully recieved. thanks

Hi there

1. No he cant stop you living with your partner.

2. No he cant stop you going on holiday. If he wants to be really silly he can make an application for a prohibited steps order, but providing you are not going in term time, the court would give him short shrift.
