Your partner does not require your permission to go outside with or without her baby. Demanding your permission is classed as coercive and controlling behaviour and is a criminal offence.
I do fully understand your concern for their safety, but, the sister who tested positive was 3 weeks ago, so the isolation period would now be over. Also if the sister is in the same support bubble as you partner, then the law allows where a household with one adult joins with another household. Households in that support bubble can still visit each other, stay overnight in each other’s households, and visit outdoor public places together.
There is nothing in law stopping her leaving you with her child if she feels she needs to.
You cannot make her or force her to stay with you.
If you are the biological father and name don birth certificate you do have legal rights to the child. Parental rights, access etc. If she is denying you access, then you need to challenge this at the family court.
I would advice seeking a family law solicitor to instruct to deal with matters for you. Legal aid may be available.
It may be helpful to instruct a local solicitor who specialises in this area of law. You can find a local firm using the Law Society website. www.lawsociety.org.uk
Once on that website, you can click on the find a solicitor option located just above the Law Society logo. Select quick search, then select the area of law required and enter your post code. A list of local firms will then be displayed.
No, not at all, but she does have the legal right to leave you and take the baby with her if she so wishes.
Your course of action would be via the family courts.
As I have explained above, you need to instruct a family law solicitor to take on your representation.
