Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
How long has the husband had the papers? Has your partner checked the online service as yet?
Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.
Firstly, the online service will tell you that you now have to wait 30 days before anything further can be done. You will see that when you log in. In 30 days time, if the husband has still not replied, the service will email you to tell you what your other options will be. At that point there will be several options available, including you providing evidence (the text message) to show that he has in fact received the documents. However, it will also include the option to serve by a process server, which will cost £110. Sometimes it is better to ensure that he cannot pretend he did not receive the paperwork by having it served on him independently. Once that is done, (shown evidence of the text) you will be able to apply to the court for deemed service. You would do that on form D11, which you can find here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/714971/D11_web_0616v2.pdf
In relation to your child, the husband is talking absolute nonsense, he is not the child's father and therefore it has nothing to do with him that you are on her birth certificate and that she has your name. Just ignore him with regards ***** *****
Does that assist?
No, there is nothing at all you need to do about the birth certifcate.
