Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, you will need to go into a local Bank or Building Society and open what is called a "trust account". As you will be named as one of the Trustees on the account, then the child's mother will not be able to touch this account without your signature. (You can ask the bank or Building Society that both of your signatures will be required for any withdrawals).
I hope this assists and if so, I would be grateful if you could leave feedback by clicking on 4 or 5 stars at the top of your screen, before you leave the site this evening. I am then happy to answer any follow up question. Many thanks
