Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
I am sorry to hear how your husband is behaving.
Please may I ask:
- is divorce contemplated?
- did your husband aquire parental resposibility for your elder 2?
Thank you for your response.
Please do accept my apologies for not being available the last few days.
I can tell you that in relation to spending time with the children - unfortuantely it is not possible to force your husband to spend time with all 3. If you were to withhold contact with the youngest, then given her young age a court would likely allow the father contact with the youngest.
In relation to the financial needs of all 3 children, as you were married and as part of dealing with the matrimonial finances, the court would consider the elder 2 as children of the family despite your husband not having parental responsibility for them. You cannot claim maintenance for the elder 2 from the child maintenance service but the court can award you a larger share of the matrimonial assets and also consider maintenance as they have been treated by your husband as children of the family and the court will want to ensure that their welfare needs are met.
