Hi, thank you for your question. Are you in England or Wales and how old is the child?
Thanks for confirming. The new husband himself has no rights to the child, however, as this is a significant adult and partner in the mother's relationship he will no doubt have contact and a relationship with him and this can only be reasonably restricted if there are welfare or child protection concerns. If it is just the husband that seeks relationship he will need to demonstrate that there is a significant relationship with the child to obtain permission to purse an application for a child arrangement order.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
