Anglik1 2 | 56 27 Mar 2012 #1My ex-partner recently gave birth to our child and was insisting on taking them out of the UK and that I would never see them again. I have taken steps to ensure that this does not happen in taking out a ‘Preventative Steps Order’ through the UK courts that prevents my ex-partner from taking our child out of the UK. The UK border agency and Polish consulate have been informed of this action. However, are there any other steps that I should take to ensure that my child cannot be taken out of the UK immediately, or sensible actions that I should take in the future? I should say that I am not married to the mother, nor at present on the birth certificate.I am not acting in a malicious manner or with anger towards my ex-partner. I simply want my child to have both parents in their life so hopefully despite their parents not being together they have the best childhood possible.Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.
