Not necessarily - visas are cheaper for Belarus and Russia with a Polish one than a British one.
And exactly what use is that to a young child. As you well know this child can pick up a Polish passport at any time in the future.
shut the f.uck up the kid was born here
It is not about politics, it is not about parents, it is about children's welfare.
Poland's current legal system regarding child welfare and parental responsibility could at best be described a shambles at worst based on Nazi ideology. Strong words I know but with some basis in fact.
This is a simple but good example of one thing that is wrong.
A couple seperate.
Children live with mum for a period of time.
Dad moves 300km away.
A while later he takes the children out for the day but does not return.
A week later they are found at Dads new address (note the Police will not be interested in this situation at all)
Mum has little or no contact with children.
Now I would like to believe that a reasonable human being would see there is a problem here. The law in most countries recognizes this as parental abduction and a recognizes that this situation is detrimental to a child's welfare amongst other things.
Not Poland. Oh no, you can do what you want if you have parental responsibility. It is not possible in Polish law to abduct your own child. This means you have no recourse to the law or police so in actual fact there appears to be little or no provision for child protection from a parent who has no thought for his/her child's welfare.
Throw into this scenario that this is an International relationship or a Polish family based in another country and it takes on a whole new context. Political and religious bias then take the driving seat. Lets take for example a Polish family that has lived in the UK for 5 years. They have a nine year old child that has been in school in the UK for five years. Dads a heavy drinker, knocks mum about and Mum discovers she doesn't have to put up with this in the UK , so asks him to leave. A week later Dad collects the child from school and returns to Poland with the child. This is a typical example by the way. What are the consequences for the child? Think about it from the child's point of view. It's not really ideal, its a disaster. Poland will of course think differently. The father has done nothing wrong and this is a Polish child, with Polish culture and therefore should be in Poland at all cost to the child's rights and welfare. Of course in the UK the father has become an International Child Abductor and would be considered a danger to the child until such time he can prove otherwise. In Poland the courts will support him, no matter what his previous behavior has been. Not only this, but because the Court Psychologists are in the direct pay of the courts, in fact each judge has a special relationship with those they employ, they cannot provide reports to court based on credible information they have, they must report what the court wants so any report will be pure fantasy. Why Poland has such a high reliance on psychologists, I find ridiculous. What the physco says is taken a fact when in truth it an opinion based on little or no knowledge of the real situation, but the lies placed in court. Of course we use them here but a judge is less likely to take what is written as trustworthy information. We can now see the Polish mother and the Polish child are in a bad position. Is this right? Of course not which is why we have the hague convention. Problem is, that although Poland has signed it's politics and religious convictions prevent it from applying law.
