Thank you for the quick reply.
Tanya has been a part of Tegan's (the child) life since she was born so 3 and a half years now. Tanya and her ex split up about 2 years ago, but still lived in the same house until June this year as that's when she moved in with Jo and obviously so Tegan wouldnt be negatively affected. When living together, Tanya was paying Becca (the ex) rent, but turns out Becca never put Tanya down as living with her so she could claim benefits.
In the last few months the contact Tanya gets have gone to Friday evenings to Monday mornings as Becca has moved but hasnt geot Tegan started in school yet.
Tanya has gone for rights before but got turned down due to Becca claiming that Tanya never lived with her for over 3 years, but they were together for 6 and also because Tanya and Becca were never married.
Anymore information you need I am more than happy to give you,
No, Tanya and her ex, Becca, were never married when they were together. If it does help Jo and Tanya are now engaged and are set to be married next November.
Yes, it was done at home as Tanya's brother as the donor
He isnt on the birth certificate no, but yes he is willing to be involved in this
She went for step parent parental rights, adopting, but as her ex never had her down as living together, she cant.
Like what? It's just the ex telling Tanya when she can have the child.
Well there is Jo and Tanya who can vouch for it as they have changed their shifts in work to suit it, and then there is Jo's mother, friend and myself who spend time with Tegan regularly on the weekends
