Paranoia or instinct? What action to take?

by JaneDoe / Posted 13/10/2016 / Updated 28/10/2016

Hi all, I have a 2 year old Son and am separated from his Egyptian Father (who had UK residency before we met). We split when our child was 3 months old.
He sees our Son almost daily, shows up whenever he wants and takes him out for hours on end. I´m desperately unhappy with this ´arrangement´ and in the process of applying for a contact order. I live in fear that he will take our Son to live in Egypt.. he has recently bought a house in his home town and married a local woman (who he swears will be coming to the UK). I can´t live with this fear any more, I know I can go full force and apply for a prohibited steps order but am nervous as he´s a dedicated dad (overly so in my opinion). I´m scared of ´forcing his hand´ if I attempt to restrict his visitation rights. Please help! I would do anything for my baby which is why I´m stalling on a decision so big. But is any risk too much of a risk? I really don´t know if I´m letting paranoia take over
