Holidays are great. But when you're a Stepmum there can be a whole lot more to deal with than just packing and organising. Like - are the step children coming or not? Sometimes this can get stressful. You had the holiday dates agreed, booked the holiday, and now Birth Mother has a) changed her mind b) lost the passports c) won't commit to a pick up time.

If you don't have arrangements and the passports within 2 or 3weeks of the holiday, you can apply for an urgent specific issues order and get the holiday ordered.

We have a section for holidays on the forum - you'll find others in similar situations.
