To move forward, he made the painful decision to let go of his ex-wife, recognising that she was using their children as pawns.

Despite missing his kids, he has been unable to reconnect with them and has chosen not to talk to them.

Determined to rebuild his life, he initiated plans to relocate to a new country, beginning the process in July and securing a visa by September.

Now settled in this new land, the man is starting afresh and finding happiness in his new chapter. He has decided to get married again and looks forward to expanding his family with more children.

In his words;

“I share custody of two kids with my ex-wife. Unfortunately, she set me up during a visit to see the kids (confirmed by a judge at the magistrate court), leading to unnecessary restrictions.
