A local Social Services Council taking me to court under the Hague!

by Laura / Posted 16/10/2013 / Updated 06/11/2013

Has anyone had this happen to them? I see very few people out there who have gone through this and at the moment I feel totally hopeless and at a loss of what to do. Social Services were considering to take my children into care because their father is very violent, we were´nt together and hadnt been for a long time, but they were worried I wouldnt be able to protect my children from him, so I decided to move to live with my family in Ireland from UK. I was living here a month when I found out that Social Services were going to make an application to the court under the Hague! They are saying that I have abducted my own children, even though their father doesnt want them returned, social services want my children returned so they can put them in fostercare in UK! Myself and my children are settled in Ireland now and we are happy here and I desperately dont want to go back, but I fear this will happen soon. Any help would be gratefully appropriated. Thank you for reading.
