Need advice
« on: September 24, 2012, 05:21:45 PM »

Hello, I was wondering if anyone out there that can give me advice. I am an American. My ex is a british, living in england, and his mother owns villa's in Ciairo, had papers served to me seeking international visitation, I'm so very scared. I live on a fix income. I live in Tucson, Az. I really can't afford expensive lawyer to represent me. My ex on the hand has a father who's a CEO for she'll oil company. I went to legal aid. Legal aid said that my ex will probably get half of what he is seeking. My son is eight year old. Please, please can someone help me?

Thank you so much. Just received a letter from my ex's lawyer that the grandmother will be telephoning during the hearing :(

if you take some time to read some post, you will notice that the tactics most people use are delay, delay, delay.....Postpone the hearing. When the new one is scheduled postpone it again.

What exactly is it that you are worried about with regards to your son's father wanting to see him? 


Do you think the father will kidnap the child and take him to Egypt?  Has he threatened doing so?  Is he even Egyptian?  If not, it's not at all clear as to whether or not that country would allow him, as a non-Egyptian father of a non-Egyptian child, to harbour a kidnapped American child there.  Talking to someone with more knowledge about Egyptian laws would be a good way to find out more.  As far as the UK goes they are a signatory to the Hague Abduction Convention and have proven very capable at returning abducted children, particularly so if the left behind parent is the mother.

On the other hand, if you just don't want to let you son see his father and extended family, you won't find much advice or sympathy for that here.  Short of there being some grave risk of harm being involved both the father and your son have a right to see each other.
