Right to visits in home country

by Marie / Posted 26/11/2013 / Updated 24/10/2014

Im wondering if anyone has experience or knows what usually happens in separation cases when the mother living in a foreign country wishes to visit her homeland with a young child when the father wont consent. Im particularly interested in cases in Italy, which is where Im living. I have asked the courts for permission for at least one visit a year to England, but its more than five months and still no response. I have the strong belief that I will not be granted permission.
I look forward to any comments or advice.

It seems there is no justice. Nearly 18 months and after two formal requests through the judge for the right to at least a couple of weeks a year in the UK with my son, finally a response...not permitted. Of course I could visit whenever and for however long I wish, but my son mustnt leave the country and get to know where I, his mum, comes from. I have to note that I have never made any attempt to leave the country. I have been patiently awaiting the legal right to visit with my son, not wanting to jeopardise the situation and put myself in a bad light, even if I would be doing no wrong. This is true injustice.
