What Are Parents' Rights on Separation?

By: Lorna Elliott LLB (hons), Barrister - Updated: 19 Nov 2018 |
 
Separation Parent Rights Child

The break up of a relationship is always stressful and can leave one or both parents feeling lost, hurt and bewildered. When you separate from the other parent of your child or children, there are certain rights and responsibilities that you need to understand which will help you to make better decisions for yourself and your child.

Parental Responsibility

Mothers automatically have parental responsibility for their children. Fathers also have this right if they were married to the mother when the child was born. If you are an unmarried father, you will have parental responsibility if your name is registered on the child’s birth certificate. You can also get a court order to get parental responsibility of the child, which does not in principle require the consent of the mother. If you separate from your partner and child, you do not lose parental responsibility.

Financial Arrangements For Your Child

When you separate, you will both need to make decisions about the welfare and upbringing of your child. This includes where the child lives and with whom, how the parent who is not living with the child will have contact with the child, and how the child will be supported financially. If you cannot agree this amicably, you will probably need to go to court to have arrangements enforced. Other issues that separating parents should discuss are holidays, education, who has responsibility for taking a child to a doctor, and what would happen if one of you became too ill to care for the child.

It invariably costs more for parents to live apart than together and if financial arrangements are not made this can cause hardship for the child. No matter how angry you feel about what has happened in the break up of your relationship, you should always remember that your child’s needs must come first. If you are able to come to a financial arrangement between yourselves about your child (known as a ‘private agreement’) then that is often best, but it does mean that your arrangement is not legally binding. If payments are not made under a private agreement, the Child Support Agency cannot get involved and help you recover this money.

What If We Can’t Agree?

If you cannot agree payment arrangements amicably, you may decide to use the CSA or get the court to decide. Using the court is likely to cost money, because you will have to pay court fees and will probably need a solicitor. Going to court over child support payments is not covered by legal aid, but if you are already going to court to determine other issues you can decide child support matters at the same time.

You should also look at changing your will after separation, or if you don’t have one, you should definitely make one! If you don’t have a will, your assets will be dealt with under the laws of intestacy. If you do have a will that is out of date, and your ex partner was the main beneficiary, your assets will go to your ex partner on your death.

What About Our Home?

In terms of property, one partner may decide to leave the family home. This can be problematic if the parents aren’t married, especially if a new partner moves in with your ex before arrangements can be finalised. In these situations, it is very important that you speak to a solicitor without delay. If you and your ex partner are married, one person automatically receives the other’s estate on death – which you will want to avoid if you have separated.

You don’t always have to sell your home on separation. You may be able to agree who pays the mortgage, or get a court order as to that effect. One partner may be able to buy the other partner out of the property, or you could decide to sell it at some point in the future.

Do I Have To Go To Court?

Not all separations and divorces end up in court. Some people are content to use a separation agreement, or to enter mediation in order to come to an agreement about issues between you, your partner and your child. Mediation is often much less stressful than having to resort to court action, and can also be cheaper than litigation. That said, you will have to use the court if you decide you are going to divorce. There is no way around this.

Speak To A Solicitor

In short, if you can possibly keep negotiations amicable then this is best. Things do however have a tendency to deteriorate and you can find yourself very short of money, or without a home, or both, if you decide to leave. In these circumstances, you should always contact a solicitor.

Hi my wife moved out yesterday and has been threatening to report me for Domestic Violence if I do not agree to pay half of her rent, the bills and provide certain furniture. We have 3 kids and she has reported me for DV before but I was released with no charge or anything. She is constantly threatening me, using the Police and DV as a whipping tool ( I have never touched her). I would like to know, am I legally obliged to meet her demands (half ret, bills etc) if we are not divorced yet? Thanks

Hi, I’ve been with my partner 8 years and have a 6 year old son. We’ve sadly fallen out of love and have been continuously arguing for 18months/ 2 years. I’ve been wanting to leave him but he keeps saying I can’t take our son with me and he will fight me for sole custody. He’s also said if I do take our son and let him visit he won’t return him as he’s got rights being on the birth certificate. The only reason I’ve stayed is because of these threats as I don’t want to be separated from my son. What steps can I take to leave him and to make sure our son isn’t affected by this as I want him to grow up with both his parents in his life and not around us arguing. My partner is verbally and emotionally abusive towards me but a fantastic dad and I have a history over 10 years ago of violence in my past which my partner threatens to use against me.

Hi, my ex-partner has accused me of domestic abuse and giving her a black eye (of which I am innocent and have a recording of her saying just that).she got drunk at Centre Parks while away with our 5 year old daughter and came back with it in april.the police have charged me and I am in court in August.i have been the main carer to our kid since she was born, technically a stay at home dad as she has a career etc.she owns our home and I am now homeless, no kid, no money, no job.and she is saying that she wants a residency order for our daughter and I have no rights to any kind of settlement wether to do with contact or financial etc etc.please help.many thx.

Our Response:
Unfortunately, we are unable to help in this instance as it will be up to the court to decide what it thinks is in the best interests of your child. If the court decides that you are not guilty of assualt, you have a better chance of requesting access, please see the link here . If your partner owns your home, then you have little rights over it unless you can register a beneficial interest. Please see the link here, which will explain your rights more fully. In your case, you may wish to seek legal advice in order to fully explore yoru options. The CAB can help with free legal advice.

I stumbled across this page desperately looking for advice,my son as been in a abusive marriage, but has a child with his partner,many of his family tryed desperately to get him help ie different advice places but he had to contact them himself, unfortunately six days ago my son was aggressively attacked by his partner where he had hold of his little girl,he managed to get out the home and tryed to contact the police,his partner viciously grabbed his phone off him and left deep scratch marks to a old skin grafted arm,she contacted the police and they acted in her favor because she phoned first and lied that she had been assaulted my son was arrested an was kept in custody til next day,my son isn't not allowed near his mortgage home that he pays for as she doesn't work and on benefits she's stopped my son seeing his little girl. He's up in court this week and can't get his items that belong to him,as the bail conditions. What rights has he got because his partner is dominating every situation,she's also asking a third party for my son transfer money to her for the baby but he can't because of the bail contact iam so worried about my grandaughter and son mental state of mind. I have contact services relating to my grandaughter but iam worried sick my son will dishome me because he thinks child services will take his little girl

Our Response:
Your son's only recourse is to take the matter to court, please see link here. Social Service cannot help in terms of child access - only a court can do this. If your son is under bail conditions, he would also need to take legal advice to see whether he has a case.

Meme14 - Your Question:
Hello I'm lost I need advice im a full time mother for 3 children aged 7 , 4 , 2 I had a bad life with my husband we arguments all the time I have asked him to divorce but her refused and he told me if you got to the court the children will be with me not you because you not working and the tenancy under my name and I will be left alone no kids no home nothing , it's been over two years now I'm scared I don't know what to to the children services get involved one and the police twice because he hit me what shall I do ? Dose he have right for children in case I got to court for divorce ? Who has the right for children in this case ?

Our Response:
The parent that generally has the right to look after the children on separation is the parent who looks after them on a day-to-day basis. If your husband is named on the tenancy agreement, he can ask you to move out. If you go, you are within your rights to take your children. The Women's Aid link here may help if you wish for some further advice.

Daddy from UK - Your Question:
Hi there I am suddenly in a situation where roughly half a year ago I relocated to N.I where my long distance partner was heavily pregnant carrying my child.Upon moving in with her and establishing myself here in NI (registering with Drs,finding a job and a car) it seems I'm now in a position where we won't stop arguing and we can't talk too long before another row ensues.In short I've been given an ultimatum where I will have to find my own place eventhough my child is 4+months and I work standard 9 hours but help out pay bills and do shipping do chores etc and weekend duties with little one so she can rest up.My issue now is because I've never been here before what happens next? And how to I ensure whatever money (which I've no clue how much is required only how much I give her)household/her kids/ us is spent now) I send is actually going to my child and how do I prevent her from cutting me out of my child's life since threats have been made to @#£& off back to England and if I'm not happy to go away before?

Our Response:
I am sorry to hear this. How you pay child maintenance can be seen via the link here. Your ex will not have to justify what she spends the money on. If you cannot agree on what access you should have of your child should you separate, then you may wish to see if mediation would suit, please see link here. Trying to keep all things amicable is the best way forward, so that you can both act on what you think is in the best interests of your child first and foremost. Our partner site Separated Dads may also help answer any other questions you may have, please see link here.

Grey- Your Question:
Hello I was wondering if I can have some advice, I've never been through anything like this before, me and my partner have broken up. He has chucked me out of our shared council house, both of our name are listed on it. He also insisted he wants mains responsibility of our 4 year old son. But he claims I won't be allowed because I work unsocialable hours, I'm even happy to leave my job or ask my manager to move my hours. I only do 16hours. My sons dad doesn't. I really don't know what to do.

Our Response:
If you are currently the main day-to-day carer for your child, then it is likely a court will allow this to continue. If you have your name on the tenancy agreement, then when a relationship breaks down, both parties remain entitled to occupation of the family home. You can see more via the link here, which will tell you all you need to know regarding your rights.

Sarah Jane - Your Question:
Hello I would like some advise please, I have two young children,my ex the children's father is taking the children for the weekend on a trip away,I have said I would like the details of where they will be going and the hotel details, in case of emergency. My ex has been refusing to provide me with the detail.I am the main carer for the children, who live full time with me. Legally where do I stand,does the children's father need to disclose this information Thank you

Our Response:
There is no law which says he has to provide you with this information. Likewise, you are under no obligation to provide him with the information (if you also take the children away). Ideally, it should be discussed and agreed between you. Many parents are courteous and will give the other parent details. For others, it remains a bone of contention.

Me and my partner are on the verge of breaking up. We have twin girls (10minths old) and I'm currently 12 weeks pregnant. We all live in his house, my car is the family car. If me and the girls did move out we would live with my parents for a while until we got a house of our own. He doesn't have a clue on dealing with the girls, I'm the one always dealing with them. He never interacts with them either.He drinks alcohol every night (at the least 3 cans of lager, at the most 6 cans), I haven't drunk a drop since before my first pregnancy. I want to know, by law do the children come with me and can I stop him and especially his family from seeing the children??

My husband has been caught out lying (not cheating this time) and I have had enough and want to separate and he doesn’t. We have a toddler and I’m currently 7 months pregnant. Our house is in both of our names but I own a higher percentage with a declaration of trust due to me paying the deposit. He refuses to move out or sell and I really can’t live with him without it effecting our children. Where do I stand? I have no where else to live but he could move back with his parents.

Jeffery- Your Question:
My niece has just separated from her boyfriend. He has take her son with him as she has had a few problems with drink and depression. She has also taken 3 overdoses in the last 3 months. Has is getting professional help and has a lot of support in place. Her partner is making it difficult for Her to see her son. He is refusing to let her have her son for the weekend without him being present. Even thou she will not be alone with him as she is staying with me.help please as dont know what we can do.

Our Response:
I am sorry to hear this. Unfortunately, your daughter has two options if she cannot agree with her ex and that is to suggest mediation in the first instance in order to come to a workable arrangement, and if her ex is still being difficult she would have apply to court. As in all cases, the court’s main concern is the welfare of the child in question. The court will always put the child’s best interests first and this main issue will determine the outcome of any application for an order. Cafcass are also likely to get involved. The Cafcass staff who compile the reports are known as children and family reporters. It’s their job to interview both parents in the case, as well as the children, and any others who might be needed, which could mean social workers, medical professionals, or relatives. From the interviews they conduct, the reporter will determine two things: whether there should be contact allowed, and, if so, how much. It’s a measure of how important the Cafcass recommendation is that the court will almost invariably adhere to it. Once an order is in place, both parents will have to stick to the order.

Mommy - Your Question:
Hello. Hope will find some advice here.I am mom of baby boy, and biological father (after DNA test) is more than sure that he can take a full custody of child and take baby away from me.He has never been involved in our presence (just for short time in middle of pregnancy), since then never been interested in baby’s wellbeing and in baby’s existence. because of his emotional behavior we split.I have been reported to police his abusive and threats to police (case is ongoing now). As he is threatening take a child away from me- where do I can seek advice, as I would like to keep Bio Father as far as possible from us.Many thanks

Our Response:
You don't say whether the father is registered on the birth certificate and whether he has parental responsibility. If he doesn't, he cannot take your child away from you, as if he tries the police can intervene. If he does have PR, and you feel he may take your child and refuse to give him back, or you have evidence of threats, then you may wish to apply for a child arrangement order through court which will determine where your child should officially live, please see linkhere.

Hi, just looking for some advice. I have a 3 month old son, and we live in my partners house- the mortgage is fully his. I dont want to be with him anymore due to constant rows and argurments in front of our son. I dont work, he earns the money and owns the house so how do I go about leaving him? I dont know where to start or what to do!

Our Response:
The CAB link here, should answer your question in full. If you are the primary carer of your son then you may have some rights to stay in the house. Much depends upon the length you have been with your partner etc. The article will elaborate more regarding this.

Lonely dad - Your Question:
Hi, my wife walked out a few months ago, taking my 12 yo with her. Things have been rocky since then between me and my ex, which has caused problems with our son. She let's him decide what he wants to do so therefore I do not see him for a couple of weeks at a time, even though they are very close. I also feel because she's living with her sister there is a bad influence from them, even though my ex says they just say do what you want to him. I believe that doesn't help, as he will feel obliged to stay close to his mum. Because of the problem between my ex and me (mainly because of me having a mental breakdown) communication is hard and sometimes none. I want to see my son more often but what's the easiest way without court? Thank you

Our Response:
Anything that you cannot resolve between you and your ex directly/mutually, should be resolved through mediation, please see link here.

H - Your Question:
Me and my ex have been separated for a few years now and things were always quite easy to resolve and to organise between us both and we were very civil up until the last 6 months where it has been a nightmare. I want to change the days/times that my daughter goes to her dads house but I’m worried about the backlash. He always acts like he has a big chip on his shoulder and that he misses out. We changed the times etc so that he saw her a little bit more but I don’t feel as though it’s beneiftting her. She’s unsettled and is having accidents at bedtime and sometimes during the day, she’s been referred to a clinic because of this. Her dad has a new girlfriend and has bought a house with all all in the last few months and that has defiantly taken a role in her being unsettled and it’s just not fair on her. I would rather he only saw her every second weekend and that she stayed with me through the week for school etc, my job allows me to be there to drop and pick her up everyday. I’m there 24/7. I just don’t no if I have a leg to stand on and what to do now.

Our Response:
Obviously, if the other parent is your child's father, then it is likely he is going to be upset over any changes in the arrangement if it means seeing his child less. Therefore, your only option would be to suggest mediation as a way of trying to negotiate around this issue. If your ex disagrees with your suggestions, then he will have the option to take the matter to court. As in all cases, the court’s main concern is the welfare of the child in question. The court will always put the child’s best interests first and this main issue will determine the outcome of any application for an order.

Her dad has a new girlfriend and has bought a house with all all in the last few months and that has defiantly taken a role in her being unsettled and it’s just not fair on her.I would rather he only saw her every second weekend and that she stayed with me through the week for school etc, my job allows me to be there to drop and pick her up everyday. I’m there 24/7. I just don’t no if I have a leg to stand on and what to do now.
