Thank you. The issue is that he has refused to provide a return date (only a pick up date). That is what we are asking for before the kids are released into his care. If he can give me that, I will be happy to honour our agreement.

As for court, to save costs we'd like to try mediation first. He has not provided any reason why he won't go that route. We offered shuttle mediation which might be more attractive to him. The costs are huge for court and it would be ideal to avoid that.
