I'm heartbroken after my ex took my children and won't tell me where they are

DEAR DEIDRE: WHEN my ex moved away, she took my two children with her. Now I don’t know where they are and it’s breaking my heart.

Our relationship ran into problems and in the end we split up.

At first I was seeing my children – two girls, aged eight and five – at least twice a week.

But within a few months my ex found a new partner. She told me I had to win access to my girls through the courts, which I did.

The problem with the court ruling is that as I have a low income, I couldn’t afford to pay for a contact centre to see my children. It’s totally unfair.

My ex is 32 and I’m 33. I have now heard she has moved house.

I have no way of contacting my children and can’t even send them birthday or Christmas presents.

DEIDRE SAYS: This situation is heartbreaking for you, of course, and it is cruel of your ex to cut you out of your daughters’ lives.

It is so important your daughters know they still have a dad who loves them and cares.

Family courts can determine where a child is.
