I am worried about same thing, my ex is also from Algeria. I am sorry I can´t give you any information but I´d like to hear if it can be prevented.

If he takes them to Algeria then you will not be able to get them out as they can only leave with the Father´s written permission. You will only be able to secure custody of them in Algerian with very little maintenance from him.

Hi I have an ongoing court case with my Algerian ex-husband seeking unsupervised contact with our children, with the court putting in place a PSO(prohibited steps order)or an injunction barring him to take them abroad. I viscerally don´t trust him as he made direct verbal threats when we were still married and attempted to make them Algerian passports. As far as I know, the PSO can not stop realistically someone to take the children away. He could easily travel with them if he wishes. Would any of you have knowledge or information about how to deal with this kind of situation, maybe how to address this matter to the court as I am representing myself at the court. Thanks. Kind regards

Marble, I am in an almost identical position. I wonder if we could talk somehow via email (I am worried about being identified on here)

Hi Everyone,
My ex husband is Algerian. He wants to take our kids to Algeria for ´holidays´. I am worried they will never be back and told him I will not give my permission for him to take them. He told me he will ´take me to the court and will fight with me´. Is there something I can do? Have you managed to sort everything out for your children? Thank you
