Customer Question

Hi. Does current UK law contain any criteria for what may be considered a romantic relationship? I ask in connection with a local authority prohibiting me from 'rekindling a relationship' (their words) with the father of my child. Any answers would be gratefully received.

Is this an allegation of benefit fraud by any chance?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No it relates to child protection. My partner and I were separated by Children's Services when our children were placed under Child Protection Plans (there was domestic violence). We have stayed friends and I have three children with him. The Child Protection Orders have now expired (Sept) and we spend time together at the weekends (ie live in the same house). My eldest daughter's father (not my partner) is trying to show that we are living together in violation of this statement at the bottom of our last Child Plan: Risk Assessment Contingency Plan: Should the children be exposed to emotional harm or there is a relapse in the parents stability and/or the parents rekindle their relationship, legal advice will be sought with a view to place the matter before the court and alternative care for the children found. Preferably with paternal family members.
