Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you

The law says that a child is entitled to contact with both parents - so yes I am afraid the biological father would be able to get an order allowing him to spend time with the child - but certainly not to take the child from you

You need to discuss matters with him using Family mediation

www.familymediationcouncil.org.uk

He will have to accept that your husband has an equally important role in the child's life

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
