So, what you have are interim orders made by the court.

The same still stands - you don't have an automatic right to care for the kids while mum is in hospital. It needs to be negotiated between you.

Look, you've been very unclear about your situation and have made very minimal effort to provide the information needed to get an adequate answer for you.

In simple terms, no, you don't have a right to care for the kids when the mother is in hospital. You don't have any rights as a parent, only your child does.

Please get legal advice. I don't think anybody here can help you any further than they already have.

All it says is that they reside with the mother untill it goes back to court
If she has lied on a court order can that go bad against her which she has by not telling the truth and by under lineing it when i do have the proof that she is on drugs

Major issue you need to explain Paulie:
What is the 'it' you keep referring to? (You say 'it says ...' this or that.)
As you'll see from the many posts from people trying to help, you need to spell it out for us - whether the "it" is an Interim Court Order OR ... something carrying less force like a text message. We don't know because you haven't clearly stated it and nobody knows your exact situation. So you can pick what's relevant from the information given above I guess if you don't know/can't tell us.
Even so, @AllForHer's information still applies, so you can refer back to it.
Good luck with it.

The incident you've given above is not enough reason for a court to submit a child to an upheaval in her life by changing the residency arrangements. All it shows is that your daughter has a secure attachment to you, which is very good for your case, but if you are aiming for sole parental responsibility, you need to show why the child living with you is in her best interests.
