Thank you for your response.
My son was born in April 2003. His father is named on the birth certificate, but we we never married.
I don't know. I haven't told him yet, as I'm worried about his reaction and wanted to get information about my rights first, e.g. would I get sole custody, could we leave even without the father's agreement.
I thought my son could visit his dad during school holidays or long weekends and would also suggest to his father that he could visit us in Germany when he wants to (providing he gives us prior notification re dates).
thank you very much for your help.
Is there anything in writing I can get to prove that, as per your reply, I have sole parental responsibility?
The school in Germany is asking for that.
Thank you for all your help.
