Hiya Tom, not knowing your situation i.e. divorced or seperated, if there is a custody order in place etc could maybe throw a bit of light on things. But if I was in your position I would feel the need to have contact details if my children where being taken away for a period of time. With my own experiences with parental child abduction there would have been steps I could have taken if Id only knew what route to go down. You may get advice by contacting Reunite or I got a lot of my facts and what my rights were by contacting my local family court and spent some time with the court manager. I explained the situation and he checked on the laws as well as other advice that was a great help to me. It does sound like you have the worry that with no contact over a 5 week period not knowing where your children will be that you have concerns over your wifes intentions. its better to find out how you stand rather than put yourself through the worry. Im sorry I cant throw any light on the exact rights but I would want details if I was in your position.
