My husband of ten years and I separated recently and I took our 3 children to live 4 hours from where they were living. Background was, we were living up north while I was doing a 2 yr internship - my husband was having to travel a lot to keep his job as we had moved 7 hours from our home town. After my internship, my husband insisted we move back to our home town. I consented and stayed on to finish the last two months of my internship and apply for a new role. 4 weeks after the move I got a new job in a town 4 hours north of the city the children and my husband were based, I consented to them all continuing to live there while I worked and came down on weekends and RDOs. However, we separated 3 weeks after the children started school and I took them to where I work without my husband's consent. He has now applied to have the children ordered back to our home town ( custody of children). I have been told he has no chance of the children being ordered back as they have now been in school for the rest of this term and the youngest is only 4. But now I am unsure. I also have a teenage daughter who is now living with my sister in the same town as I have forbidden her to live with her stepfather and she refuses to live with me. Also, does this court application effect my child support application?
