Hi, I am new here. I am right in the middle of leave to remove application and I have a question about the bond.

Is there anybody who had an experience of bond, or the info about this? I had hard time finding exact info about this.

1) Who decides how much to pay, my ex or the court?
2) How do they work out how much is needed to be put in?
3) How long is it held for?
4) Could they demand an unreasonable amount?

I am anxious to how this is going - so any advice / experience will be very helpful! Thank you!

the purpose of a bind is generally to allow an amount which is suffience to cover the costs of recovering the child / enforcing the order if the order is breached, so ho much is needed will depend on the specific situation.

The bond also serves to ensurethat the paretn providing it has an incentive to keep to the order, the the amount may vary depending on their finacial means.

Ultimately a court woud determine how much was appropriate, having heard arguments from both sides, so you would need to be able to justify the amount you were proposing.

Hi Blue Storm

I got LTR 2 years ago. The judge knew my ex and I were selling our house so she ordered me to put £3000 in the bank as a bond. You are supposed to keep it until the youngest child turns 16.
