    By partner I assume you are not married. Marriage may let you remain in the UK.

    What do you mean by "keep the kids"? Do you not live together? Is he not allowing you to take them with you when you need to leave the UK? We need to understand the situation better to help.

    Ok, so its not that he won't let you keep the children, but that he won't let you take them from him out of the country. And I'm assuming that its not just for a visit but when your visa expires.

    Sorry, but he has equal rights to the children. Just as you think its unfair for him to keep you from them, he thinks its unfair for you to take them from him.

    Bottom line is you have to either go to court and prove that the children will be better off returning to your country with you. Not a good chance since I'm assuming they are British citizens. Or you find some way to stay in the UK (Marriage?)

    Thank you... I think we will go to the court and I can prove that he is not a good father and never did nothing for the children and my kids will be better without hem . If he will ever want to see the children I'm okay with that .

    He's not a good father but you are OK with him seeing them. Isn't that a contradiction?

    You say he never did anything for them, but helps provide a roof over their heads and food on the table.

    You will need a solicitor to prepare a case that the court will believe because your case is shaky so far. Add to that the fact that the children are British citizens and I think you will be fighting a losing proposition.
