Can anyone help me with this one? My daughter is separated from her partner due to financial and emotional abuse. He is resident in UAE and she is concerned about him not returning my grandson who is nearly 8. He has been visiting previously but the relationship has deteriorated and she no longer trusts her ex partner to return him. She has also recently found out that my grandson has been slapped across the face by him on several occasions over the last few years. It is now going to court for residency and contact. My grandson does not want to live in Dubai. He wants to see his father but would prefer it to be in this country.
My daughter is going for sole residency, her ex partner wants shared residency. My grandson was born in this country and has lived here for 4 years solely with my daughter following the three of them returning from Australia..
UAE is a non Hague convention country. Would a UK court grant him joint residency in this case?
Also can this be heard in a local court or will it have to go to a London court?
I am supporting my daughter as much as I can but we are both unclear about the above and would welcome some advice.
