You can go home but you cannot take your child out of the UK without court permission.

You need to seek the help of a family law solicitor. You daugher is not entitled to capital funds only maintenance.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
why can not she have the capital funds?who decides that? why he has such a power when not married ? do i not hold any power as mother of child esspecially not married
Expert:  frantzgregory replied 11 days ago.

The law in the UK requires the non resident parent to only pay maintainance that is what it is.

It is all about the best intetest of your child and not who has the most power. Both of you have parental responsibility towards your child. It is irrelevant whether you are married or not.

got little one here so best type, and i just want answers on my first questions to know what to do, also i payed for it with my last money
Expert:  frantzgregory replied 11 days ago.

I have told you what to do. You need to go and see a family lawyer or make an application yourself to take your child out of the UK.
