Dear Claire, sorry delay.
My ex partner and I were together 10 years but we were not married. Our daughter was born on the 1st August 2007 (that makes her 7 and a half now).
Thank you help.
Yes, he is the named father on the birth certificate. BW Bettina
Dear Clare, thank information.
Just because you mentioned "n fact each of you needs the Consent of the other to take the child outside of England and Wales - even holiday" why are Scotland and Northern Ireland not included.
I have over the past 11+ years worked in Northern Ireland,and our daughter was born there. We agreed that I would come to England time of my maternity leave (just 9 months, not 7 years), and I now work part time and commute every week, because my ex-partner did not want to move to NI. Am I now 'stuck in England and Wales' rest of my life? What if my job required me to work more hours in NI? DO I have to give up my work to stay in England (with no job and no other support?). Just a quick opinion on the legal side of this. Not that I would ever leave my daughter.
