There, I am bisexual and have been in a relationship

Resolved Question:

Hi there,
I am bisexual and have been in a relationship with a man for the past 3 years. My female partner of ten years has been made aware of my 3 year affair with a man and has denied me access to my two young children.
I love my children beyond anything. I have a flexible working pattern and have been the primary carer during the day for the past two years since my former partner has a 9 - 5 job.
What are my rights and what are the primary risks to full access to my children.
Many thanks,
Gary

Hi GaryThe law says that children are entitled to contact with both parents and the courts will enforce this if necessaryThe fact that you have had a relationship with some one else does not change thatYou need to try and discuss matters with your ex using Family mediation - if that fails then you will need to apply to the court for a Child arrangement Order setting out how the care of the children shoudl be shared between youPlease ask if you need further detailsClare
