Your Rights if You Win Custody of Your Children

Separated Dads Custody Residence Order

The important fact to remember is that, in the majority of cases, the father will not be granted custody of the child by the courts. Individuals and groups have complained about this bias of the courts for several years, but it’s simply a fact that unless the circumstances are exceptional, the child or children will stay with their mother under a residence order, and you will be able to see them with a Contact Order.

Conditions For Father’s Custody

However, there are times when a judge will look very favourably on a father’s application for custody. Where the mother has a history of addiction to drink or drugs or an extensive history of binge drinking, which you can prove, there’s a good chance you’ll be given custody. There are solid reasons for this, since addicts often turn to crime to feed their habits, which can put the child in situations that aren’t good as he or she grows.

The courts take a similar attitude where the mother has a criminal record, at least if it’s a reasonably extensive one showing her to be a repeat offender. That applies whether she’s in jail or not (there are instances where mothers in jail can keep very young children with them, but those are few and far between).

The mother might be considered physically or emotionally incapable of raising a child. That might be due to a physical handicap, or it could be emotional instability. In those cases, the father would be given custody.

Similarly, where there’s been emotional or physical abuse of the child by the mother, and it can be proven, then the father will definitely receive custody. Sadly, abuse rates by mothers have been on the increase.

Finally, if the mother is deemed to have abandoned her children, the father will receive custody. Abandoned is classed as not being in communication with a child for a set period, whether by mail, phone, physical contact or email. Also, if she leaves with a new partner and has no contact with the children, or if she neglects the children when they’re in her care, then custody will devolve to the father.

Your Rights

When you have custody, you have the same rights as a mother with custody, and the mother would have Visitation Rights with the children (of course, there might be circumstances when she might be denied access). Be sure you obey the contact order fully.

Something to be aware of is that the mother can later petition the court to have the residence order changed, if she’s cleaned up her act and can prove herself to be upstanding and likely to be a good parent. Sadly, there’s a fair chance she might win, although the courts will take the wishes of the children into account.

You’d do right to feel that everything is more fragile than if you were female, since it probably is. She can always come back with her lawyer.

Me and partner have been together for four years. She has got 2 little boys with an ex partner but he's never been there until now. I have got a ten month old daughter with my partner and now the arguments have started cause the ex partner wants to get involved to see the boys. When I mention about my daughter I get told I won't be allowed to see her. I can't take it no more I feel like killing myself.

Pd - Your Question:
Me and my wife have a rocky relationship. She drinks a lot which has taken its toll on our relationship. She started to lash out at me and she was arrested for GBH. Social services were involved and she wasn’t allowed to be alone with the children due to her drinking. The court case was dropped after I retracted my statement as I didn’t want her getting into trouble. Social services concluded their report and she was allowed to be alone with the children. She moved back in to the family home and everything was fine. Two months later social services are involved again because she has started drinking again whilst I’m at work and she is meant to be caring for the children. Family members have phoned the police because they were concerned about her and the kids welfare. She didn’t let the police in on that day but when I returned from work I let them in and she was drunk. She is not at home anymore and I am looking after the children once again because of her drinking. Would I be given full custody of them because of her repeated drinking and the involvement of social services?

Our Response:
If you are currently caring for your children, then there is a possibility you would be granted residency, if the matter were to go to court. If you have parental responsibility of your children, you can refuse to hand them back (if you are concerned about their welfare) then it would be up to your ex to apply to court. As in all cases, the court’s main concern is the welfare of the children in question. The court will always put the children’s best interests first and this main issue will determine the outcome of any application for an order. Stability and consistency are considered highly important and if you can offer your children this, then you would have a good chance. The longer you have the children in your care and you can prove you are giving them a stable homelife, then the less the court is likely to remove them from your care.

@Dadtoo2kids - if you refuse the test it could be looked at as an admission of guilt. The court would view that if you deny it, then you have something to hide whether you feel it is in principle or not.
RyanB - 20-Apr-18 @ 10:44 AM
Hi my 2 kids have been living with my self since September 2013. They live with me because their mother physically abused my daughter by leaving non accidental adult inflicted injuries on her, and also fractured her back. She was never charged for it coz to be honest the police are useless. But they done a finding of facts in court and it was their mother and her ex partner that was in the pool of purpotrators. The kids had care orders on them for from Jan 2013 until November 2017 coz of her actions. I finally got them removed in Nov 2017 and got a residency order. She has since taken it back to court because of stopped her unsupervised contact (not my choice to give her unsupervised)due to themental abuse she is doing to the kids when in her care. Im trying to get all her contact supervised again. She has raised in court that I am abusing cannabis which I'm not. And requesting that I do a test. The social services had done a statement saying they had no issues concerning of cannabis when they have done any visits, plus the social had spoke to police and the kids school and they have no issues or reasons to believe that I am abusing cannabis only their mum has. The judge asked me to to a test but I'm refusing to out of princable, as it's only their abusive mother that has raised this concern. Could they remove the kids from me even though there is no issues with the care of the kids or their schooling?

tina - Your Question:
Hi I broke up with my ex in February 2017 and had to leave my 3 kids behind as had to escape through his back door. Iv been going solicitors and in court next week. He has made up a lot of lies about me, I was told they are putting I down as a section7 case and getting reports from all professionals ie, doctors, social services schools, I was also told I wouldn't get residence order for my kids because they wont remove my kids from their stable family home, I have proof that he is hardly ever staying at home and lives with his new partner who also has 3 kids and only stays at home when they fall out. He was violent to me in the past and only stood up to his father duties after I escaped, before that I was doing everything for my kids as a mother should do with little help from him, will all this go in my favour at court? I'm starting to get a little worried. He also stopped all my contact with my kids in October last year because he got into his new relationship so haven't seen them in 6month and they are only 4,7 and 9 yr old.

Our Response:
More than a year has gone by since you have been the primary carer of your children, so this may go against you (you don't say whether you applied to court for an emergency contact order etc). Your ex is entitled to live with his girlfriend and her children and this wil not go against him. As in all cases, the court’s main concern is the welfare of the children in question. The court will always put the children’s best interests first and this main issue will determine the outcome of any application for an order.

Jose - Your Question:
Me and my ex wife split up 4 years ago because she was unfaithful. She left the house where it was just me and my daughter to carry on with life. She has always paid child maintenance but has never been there for her daughter in the last 4 years dosent take her to school never pick her up. Never attends school reports. She never has really much involvement with her life much at all. Goes weeks on end without seeing her or bonding with her. Four years later she is talking about getting full custody what are her chances of getting that. When my 11 year old daughter has stated she wants to stay at home with me the dad.

Our Response:
It is highly unlikely your ex would be given residency of your child. If you disagree with your ex's proposals, your ex would have to apply to court. The court would have to have a very good reason for changing the residence of your child. The court will always opt for consistency and stability which you have obviously given your daughter over four years. 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. If your daughter wishes to stay with you and is happy, then the court will listen now she is 11-years of age. It will not look to change this arrangement.

Hi my ex has been looking after my daughter for 10 years since she was born however she has met a new man and has given my daughter to me and she it's my turn to bring her up but she is still calming things and She won't give me any of her paperwork ect birth certificate passport anything concerning schooling which I would say is important also can she just take her back because my daughter don't want to go back with her mother so I was wondering if you knew how I can make the government or make it known that I'm her Legal Guardian now she won't sign anything or write a letter or contact anyone about this please if you have any advice would be so grateful many thanks Rick

Our Response:
You can apply for a child arrangement order via the link here, which will officially determine where your child should live. However, mediation should be approached first in order to attempt to resolve these issues informally with your ex. If she will not agree to mediation, then you will have the option to apply to court.

Hi I am a single father and have been sines 2012 'once I split from my fiancée which I might add was from her been unfaithful.Anyway I ended up with the children and I have never gone down the legal route as I haven't much money and really in my heart of hearts know she doesn't want them the only reason I let them go is they are so happy when she does all she cares about is alcohol and men and the kids know that as they are 8 and 9 and you know kids they don't miss a trick.Anyway cut a long story short she hasn't come for about 3 weeks again and I have just found out that she is facing charges this coming Wednesday of possession of class A drugs and taking truths into a prison for an inmate I have the letter because her grandad taken a photograph of it and sent me it 'I think it's safe to say she is looking at a sentence 'so I have the heartbreaking task of letting the children know they may not see there mum for maybe 2 to 3 years the judge said at the last hearing 'going on what the children's grandad said and the letter 'What I want to know is can I get full custody of the children LEGALY whilst she is in prison.Thank you.

Our Response:
If you have the children currently living with you, then you are automatically considered the primary carer of your children and therefore have 'custody' or residency naturally. If you wish to make this official, then you would have to apply to the courts for a child arrangement order which would determine with which parent your children should live, please see link here . This application to court is often done if a parent thinks the other parent with parental responsibility may keep the children without their consent, in which case, the matter would have to be dealt with through court to request the children are handed back. If both parents have parental responsibility then the police cannot intervene to take the child off one parent and give them to the other; the police cannot choose between parents, that is the remit of the courts.

My Wife and I have been married 20years. Recently our relationship has deteriorated to the point of one of us leaving the family home. I have informed my wife about mediation and involving family members to assist if possible. We have 3 children ages 20, 15 and 12. My wife isn't interested in mediation. I have learnt that she has spent a considerable amount of joint money on sex sites, wear and is about to commit Adultery. She has consistently lied about her behaviour and despite my concerns the impact will have on our children's future, she is determined to go forward with this action. She aims to desert her caring duties of our children to go away and have sex with someone she met online. Please could someone advise a course of action. This selfish, emotionally abusive act will destroy our children.

Tsi - Your Question:
Me and my husband have been together for 7 years, married 3 and a half and have 3 children together. We have a very stable relationship and a loving home. My husband has a child with his ex. Who is almost 8. We have already been to court in 2014 and had a court order to have weekend access this went well for a while. Untill 14 months ago. Long story cut short the last time we had my husband's daughter was 14 months ago and once we had dropped her home which is 200 miles away we were banded all contact. The child mothers had blocked both mine and my husband's number and we previously found out shes moved address to. The child's mother had got a new partner (4th man that she has brought into her daughter life) and now the child is calling him dad (she called the man before dad to) I have had the child's mothers old friend message me and say that this man will not speak to the child unless she calls him dad. Also it had come to my attention that the mom has being saying I don't want to see my daughter and turning her against me. ( no actual proof well not enough to make it stick) in my husband's eyes he sees it that his daughter has been turned against him and quite possible brain washed by the childs mom. We have set up medeation which he will be attending soon to get something put back into place. Just wondered what people's views are, would we win in court again to get proper access. Is the mom classed as emotionally abusing the child for bad mouthing the dad and stopping access?

Our Response:
If your husband's ex has breached the court order, please see link here, then she is in contempt of court. Therefore, your husband can apply directly to court to have the order enforced.

Jack - Your Question:
Girlfriend has been caught cheeting for 6months we have a baby and a house what are my rights?

Our Response:
It is not about your 'rights' but about what you first and foremost feel is in the best interests of your child. Making a decision about your child's future should be agreed mutually with your ex if you can, please see link here. If it cannot then mediation would have to be explored before any application to court can be considered. The court will not punish your ex for having an affair. 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. If your ex is currently the primary carer of your child, then it is likely the court would seek to continue this arrangement, with you as the non-resident parent. If you can agree access mutally outside of court, then this will help. Mediation can help, please see link here. It is understandable that you may be upset and angry, but trying to put your emotions aside and trying to 'negotiate' the best way forward for you all will be the best option all round.

I have an ex who has definitely got a disorder. She has tried everything to alienate me from my child. I am so burnt out with it. I do not want to be anywhere Nuer but we have a 13 yr old daughter. I just need a decision fast. I have health issues already and the stress is hard to deal with on top. I worry for my child. She is used to hurt me . I wanting over so she cannot do this. Unfortunately trying to do it all myself is tough. I hope to have the c100 in this week. She will not mediate. She would rather put our child through the court process.

Taff - Your Question:
Hi, my ex is a narcissist and I was mentally abused by her. She has done the same to my step daughter and now my son who is 13 in march. She has poisoned him against me and she stands back and lets other people do the dirty work. I know my son wants to see me but is torn and conditioned. Iv tried talking to my daughter but she wont help as she is jealous of the blood tie from her brother.this has been put in her head by her mother.i rasied her from 18months.how difficult is it to deal with this sort of situation? Iv read up on narcissistic behaviour and it says run as far away as possible but my son is struggling. I have to do something.help I need some decent advice.

Our Response:
The problem with making a diagnosis without any psychological training, is there is no medical proof your ex is a narcissist. Many ex's choose to diagnose a former partner in this way, when opinions differ, or when they fall out, but it does not necessarily mean your ex is suffering from a narcissistic personality disorder (NPD). Diagnosis is also difficult as people with the disorder frequently do not consider themselves to have a problem and will therefore not go out to seek help. If your ex is parentally alienating your children from you, then please see link here. Cafcass are attempting to do more to combat this, please see link here. However, if your ex will not attend mediation to sort your access issues out, you would have to apply to court.

Jlm - Your Question:
Regarding abuse- will it several 'smacked bums', lying to the child and effectively brainwashing him(lying about his fathers history and making the child believe that he is intolerant to dairy products) and the child consistently having headlice, being dirty(i mean clearly hasn't been bathed for a while) and wearing inappropriate clothing(for the weather, or being far too small) be classed as abuse?

Our Response:
You can see more via the NSPCC link here, which will explain more.

Dan Cole - Your Question:
Hi there,Does anybody happen to know how to go about getting paid leave from work for a single father with a newborn? I'm told that fathers are only entitled to 2 weeks paternity pay, but surely as I have a court order for sole custody and parental responsibility and DNA proving that I am the biological father, I should be entitled to Maternity or some form of Shared Paternity pay & leave? I've contacted the payroll office at work and they are all completely baffled and claim I'm only entitled to 2 weeks. This is simply not good enough, I obviously can't just leave baby at home alone. Anyone know the law to this or if anyone has found a way round it?Thanks in advance.

Our Response:
You perhaps would be better to apply to your employer for 'maternity' or shared parental leave, if you are bringing the child up alone without the mother and you will have sole parental responsibility. If your employer refuses your leave, your only other option may be to apply for it through the courts. 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. In this case, it sounds as though your reasons for requesting maternity or shared care leave instead of paternity leave would be wholly justified and your employer should understand. Let us know how you resolve this issue. Best of luck.

My ex of 10 years came to an event I was performing at and was highly intoxicated before leaving the venue being asked to leave. she was aggressive towards myself and door staff.the night culminated in her getting arrested and held in a cell over night for drink driving.. she is currently on AD and this is not uncharacteristic behaviour. short of stalking me and attempting blackmail she also makes unreasonable demands as to when I have the children 7 and 8. I don't know what step to take next.i welcome anyone's thoughts!
