retaining my son in cyprus

by tracy / Posted 11/08/2009 / Updated 24/08/2009

i left my husband last september and returned to the uk with my two sons. my husband was not happy but ended up agreeing his stay by sending items to my son.
things were going ok and i let him go to cyprus for a holiday now he is refusing to let him return. we are both english and my son has done a year in the uk school and his home is here with us. i want him to return even though my son is saying he wants to stay. hes 7 and i know hes not able to make that decision. his father does also work away so its just not going to work. hes using him as a toy to get to me. i am thinking the retaining is illegal but he seems to think the law is with him over there and he does not need to return him to me. none of us have legal custody of our son but its wrong how hes done this
