Rights to ask alcoholic partner to leave home where she is not on tenancy. Two children at risk and SS are saying father ( who lives with them and on birth certificate is liable if anything happens but is not being involved with plans being discussed with school about thechildren. Should he give notice to partner to leave and insist on being officially responsible parent?
The children are 11 and 8 and the social worker has told him he cannot attend the meeting about the children's future but assured him they won't go into care
Social worker has said he can't. I have told him he has a right to but wanted to check. They have said they accept he is responsible parent and they will hold him responsible for the wife getting drunk but he cannot attend meeting about their future. They also told him he had no right to ask her to leave the home but I have checked on shelter website and he is the tenant so this is clearly not true. He is on benefits so am trying to help him pout. She gets the majority of the money and spends it on drink or loses it because she is drunk.
Oldest child 30/4/2000 youngest 22/1/2008. Sorry I got the ages wrong
yes on both
He is not married to his partner and yes the relationship is over. She won't stop drinking and is on Tramadol as well so it is dangerous. SS have offered rehab but say she can refuse. he wants to protect his children
Not sure. He hasn't asked her to leave yet. Its a possibility. She does not want to stop drinking but will reduce it when she knows social services are due to see her.
I don't know, I have sent him a message. I will respond when I hear back from him
It is possible that she would sign something when she is sober. Can social services hold him responsible for the actions of his partner overdosing on her Tramadol and being drunk as they have said this is the case?
