We are not getting on very well since the birth and there has been talk of separation I don't know if this is an emotional or legal response to that

You have equal parental rights. As you are married you are enetitled to Register the birth along with your wife. The legally correct name is ***** ***** followed by father's surname. As you are married, the registrar won't register the birth without your signature.
