Separation with partner and now I would like to move home with son

Add Topic
Hi
I was hoping for some advise and what I need to do if it can be done.

I am a perm-resident in Australia with a de fact Australian citizen partner. We have a 2yr old son. I have no family in Australia at all but a huge family in the uk.

My defacto partner has no siblings and his only family is his father. Our relationship is failing after 6 years. He is emotionally and verbally abusive who will not admit he has a drinking problem. I want to leave him as it is unhealthy for my son and I to continue out lives with him. He has since my sons birth not done anything towards his care and it has been observed by many that he continues not to do anything for him. If I leave I shall have no support as family is in uk - so my plan would be to relocate home with my son to provide him a better quality of life in the sense of abundance of family. My partner regularly states we (my son and I) are not and never will be family and we should get on a plane and go to the uk for good so he never had to see us again.

What do I need to do so I can legally do this. I gave heard of people doing this but fathers extraditing them back. I do not want to go through this. Just want my son and I to be happy. I do not want my son to witness any more of his fathers aggression towards me. I don't think a two year old should say mummy are u ok why are u crying daddies naughty.

I would really appreciate advise on this and the steps I need to take. My son has an Australian and British passport.

If the thinks this, then what's the problem?

Make it formal in case he has a change of heart.

Get some consent orders drawn up and have them stamped at your local court.

Orders such as:

"Mother has sole parental responsibility for the child"

"Child to live with the mother"

'Mother is at liberty to relocate with the child to the UK"

etc.

Easy peezy!
