Is he on the birth certificate
If he goes on the birth certificate then the father has parental responsibility and as such she would have to seek his permission to go to Spain. Technically leaving the country with the child he would also need to give permission. I have also to help attached a link to a great book which explains the process - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding/dp/147211910X
Yes. Although this does not prevent him from making an application to prevent the move if he is aware of it. In reality as he is the father she should tell him that she is going, although I am aware that sadly many mothers do not provide such information.

Let be clearer about the law. If there are two or more parents with PR and one wants to live abroad then they need the permission of the other parent or permission of the court. If only one parent has PR then they do not need permission to go abroad. The court will consider whether it is the child's welfare interest to live abroad. One of the leading cases is Payne v Payne. The court would want to be satisfied that if a parent is going to live abroad they are going for the rights reasons (family, work etc) and not to prevent contact.
The book will really help and please rate 5 stars for my time. Thanks
