anyone with a Lebnese ex-partner

Hi, does anyone have any advice from the point of view of having a Lebanese ex-husband. I have been putting all the information Reunite have given me into practice and contact a solicitor. I had had a past threat of abduction and only offer supervised access for my daughter and i do not trust my ex-husband. i have been to a solicitor regarding Residence order, Prohibited steps order and a Contact order. Ex is now wanting unsupervised overnight contact which i do not agree to. I am so worried and dont feel there is much i can do especially if the court grants him the access

Hello, it´s been a while since you posted so i hope you´re still around. my ex husband is Lebanese though living in a European Country. My advice to you is keep fighting, keep talking about your reasons, if you have any evidence of the threat to abduct keep referring to it. My ex has twisted and turned and lied and manipulated his way through the courts by throwing money at barristers. He now has what he wants and tomorrow our child will go for overseas contact for the first time (though I have managed to secure a sole residence order). I´m devastated that the attitude of the courts is ´we´ll just have to take the risk of abduction´ Oh, so you´re happy with that are you? My ex agreed to reunite mediation then changed his mind and there was nothing anyone could do. there seems to be no understanding in the system that this is a very real possibility. Resist unsupervised contact with every single thng you have because it´s only one short step from there to contact abroad ´to allow the child to experience their full cultural background´
Sorry this turned into a rant but I´m also feeling horribly let down and devastated about tomorrow.

Hi thanks for your post. It does frighten me that the courts take that point of view. My ex is a british citizen and has settled in the UK with his new wife and child. Now he has them he wants unsupervised visits including bringing his new family each time. Have said no must stay the same in that i go with her and i am not budging on that. Am lucky to have access to some good advice.
