Your Separated Father's Rights

Rights Parental Responsibility Civil

When you've split up with your ex it's important to know what your rights and responsibilities are regarding your children. The most important thing is to determine whether or not you have parental responsibility for your children. In the case of married couples, you're responsible for any children born in wedlock.

Unmarried Couples

In general terms, an unmarried mother is deemed to have "parental responsibility" for her children. For births registered in England or Wales; as a father you have parental responsibility if:
  • The child's birth was registered after December 1st, 2003 and your name is on the certificate as the father.
  • If the child was born before that time with no father listed on the birth certificate, but the birth was later re-registered with you named as the father.
  • If you and the child's mother sign a Parental Responsibility Agreement.
  • If you're given a parental responsibility order by the court, or a Residence Order for the child to live with you.
  • If you marry the child's mother.

If the parents are not married, parental responsibility does not automatically pass to the natural father if the mother dies.

Same Sex Couples

With same sex couples, after a civil partnership, you have parental responsibility if you have a parental responsibility agreement or a parental responsibility order from the court.

What Parental Responsibility Means for your Rights as a Dad

If you have parental responsibility, you have a say in the upbringing of your children, even if they don't live with you any more.

However, this doesn't apply to the general, day-to-day life of your children; that will lie with the mother if they live with her. But in other questions, such as religion, upbringing, medical treatment and so on, you have the same rights in making decisions as the mother.

So what rights does parental responsibility give you?

Important Decisions - we've already mentioned that decisions on everyday matters lie with the parent who has residency. But if you have parental responsibility, even as the non-resident parent - you have the right to be consulted over important issues such as:
  • Changing schools
  • Going on holidays with others/other organisations etc
  • Serious medical issues
  • Changing surname
  • Emigration
  • Their marriage
  • Adoption

Once your child gets older, he or she may express their opinions and you may feel that your parental responsibility rights are reduced. At this stage, it is therefore important to consider the wishes of the child in major decisions too.

For more details on parental responsibility, take a look at our guide and letter templates.

If you feel your rights are being ignored and you have parental responsibility, you can apply for a specific steps order or a specific issue order. More information about those can be found here:
Specific Issue Orders.

Applying to the Courts

As a father you can apply to the court for parental responsibility. The court will consider:
  • How committed you are as a father
  • The attachment between you and your child
  • Your reasons for applying for the order

Based on what the judge believes to be in the child's best interests they will either accept or grant your application for parental responsibility.

If you've been part of a couple where the children are yours and you don't have parental responsibility, you can still apply to court for certain types of orders, mostly Contact Orders to see the children, but even for a Residence Order to have the children live with you (if granted, you'll then have parental responsibility).

Note that if your former partner has a Residence Order, she can take your children abroad for up to a month without your consent. However, if the trip is longer, or she plans on moving abroad with the children, she will need the consent of both you and anyone else who has parental responsibility for the children. However, if you wish to take your children abroad for a holiday, it's a tougher issue, and legally you're advised to have her agreement first. (Taking a child abroad without the mother's consent can be deemed as abduction in the eyes of the law. Read our article What is Abduction? for more information).

Child Maintenance

Parental responsibility also means you have the duty to support your children financially. If you already have a case ongoing this will probably be done either through the Child Support Agency (CSA) or by an arranged agreement between you and the child's mother. In general terms, you'll pay 15% of your net income for one child, 20% for two and 25% for three children. However, there are adjustments, depending on how much time the children spend with you. If you move abroad, support will be done through the court rather than the CSA. Note that from 25 November 2013, the Child Support Agency (CSA) no longer takes on new cases but will continue to deal with existing cases. The new body handling maintenance issues is the Child Maintenance Service.

When Does Parental Responsibility End?

Your parental responsibility to your children ends when they turn 18 and become legal adults. However, if they're over 16 and marry, it ends with the marriage. If you've obtained parental responsibility through a Residence Order, though, and that Residence Order changes, you don't lose parental responsibility.

You should be aware that if you weren't married to the mother of your children, you're on slightly trickier ground, even if you have your name on the birth certificate or a parental responsibility agreement or order. In that case, any other person with parental responsibility can apply to court to have your parental responsibility ended. Even your children can do that, if they acquire permission from the court.

Raj - Your Question:
My wife and split up 2 years ago we had an informal agreement that the children would live with her Iv always paid maintenance. However when I went to the address I found that the property was empty. I contacted the school who informed me that my ex had left a VM saying she had left and was moving away. I called the LEA who said that no active transfer was on their system! How do I go about locating my children! Im lost help!!!

Our Response:
You would have to apply to courts for a C100 contact order and with it fill in a C4 form which is an application for an order for disclosure of a child’s whereabouts. This means the court can put a trace on your children and allow you to bring the matter to court for contact. If you cannot afford the hefty legal fees of taking the matter to court, you can self litigate, please see link here.

steve - Your Question:
Ive been separated from my wife for nearly 2 years , she left due to me drinking heavily and becoming hard work to live with , I also had been struggling with stress at work and with hindsight I dont blame her for leaving. Despite having counselling for alcohol and stress , ive lived on my own in that time , never drunk any alcohol in front of my kids or her , ive offered to use breathalysers , she has never allowed me to have the children overnight as she says she cant trust me. Social services have never been involved and never meeded to be. I understand why she left and her initial concerns but despite my efforts to prove myself she seems to have a belief that they are her kids and that I am still likely to be a danger to them , where do I stand on this one , I feel I have been patient on this one , I'm not a teetotal but after the counselling and reassessing my life I feel she is being unreasonable

Our Response:
You would have to suggest mediation to your ex and try to resolve the matter between you both mutually. If your ex refuses to attend mediation then you would have to apply to court. If it does go to court, the court will consider the extent of the problem and where you are with it now. If you are compliant and agree to any suggestions of monitoring etc then this will help. However, I suggest you seek some legal advice in order to fully explore your options.

darren - Your Question:
Do I have to inform my children's mother who is main career when I go on holiday or not in the country even when my children are not in my care. Thanks

Our Response:
If your children are not in your care, then unless you have a court order which specifies you should have your children on specific days and you will not be around to have your children on those days. Or, there will be a break in your usual access arrangements, then you do not have to inform your ex you are going away.

out of the blue , my wife seen the headmistress of our childs school, when i went there i was confronted by two police ladies, who told me that my wife did not wish to see me,and it was her wish forme to get some clothes out of the house, post the keys through the door and never return or i would be facing some sort of order, i did not see this coming at all, i was very upset, i still dont know after 5 days why this happened, but now there are panic buttons all throuout the house, and this week end i was supposed to go with my 5 year old on a camping trip, she has been making false allogations about me to the school and others i believe, we have been happily married for 11 years, and this is all news to me, i have never done anything at all to hurt or well anything, anyway after speaking to her last husband, he told me that shedid the same thing to him but also accused him of interfearing with the kids, what happens if she makes the same allogations about me. this whole episode has broken me already as i have only been allowed to see my lad best friend for one hour each day with somebody present.

Tom - Your Question:
My partner who is the mother of my child, and with another on the way is in the process of a messy divorce with her ex husband. Between them they have children, and this man wants full custody of his children and has been using dirty tactics. Child services have been involved and in one weeks time we will be told the outcome of the care order.We have been informed that my partner (mother of all children) is likely to loose her children and they will be put in care. Having found a lot of criminal history belonging to the husband, he will not likely gain custody ether, and has been told that the results will likely be the same for him.Where as a father to one, and another on the way does all of this leave me? I want my children home with me and not in care. I do not live with my partner (mother to my children) but that is a recent thing due to their care order. The husband used my criminal record of domestic abuse against my partner. I'm not attempting to justify my actions, I did wrong, but this was an incident in the past. One of the rules of their care order is that my partner was to keep their children away from me, so to help matters I thought best that I moved out until the case was dealt with and closed. Do I have a leg to stand on? Or are they likely to stop me before I speak the word 'custody'? As it is, my children are likely to be taken into care next week and there seems to be nothing that I can do about this dispite me being the paternal father of one and soon to be another, and yes, I'm noted on his birth certificate. I feel totally helpless, I should be protecting my children, but am being prevented from doing so due to their custody hearing mess

Our Response:
Social Services will carry out an assessment which will determine where and with whom your children should live. It will take your previous criminal history into consideration as any residency order will have the children's best interests at heat. You may wish to seek some legal advice.

Our Response:
Whatever time you negotiate between you would have to be agreed between you. If you cannot agree, then you would have to suggest mediation to try and resolve this issue via a third party, please see link here .

I have split with my Partner who I been with for 6 six years and I want to have them every week end, I work through the week in the night so I sleep the the day and won't see them at all really. Only time I get will be Friday till Sunday am entitled to every week end ?

Our Response:
You would have to negotiate this with your ex as there are no fixed rules. If you and your ex cannot agree, you would have to suggest mediation, please see link here . If your ex refuses mediation, or the mediation process fails, then court would be your final option. Hopefully, it will not come to that and you will be able to agree between you.

Hi there.im a separated father for 2 and half years now and if had my son every weekend since the split I originally wanted him every weekend all weekend,but his mother said no,as she needed quality time at the weekend too.to which I reluctantly agreed too(I have him every Friday,then take him home alternate week's,till Saturday 6pm,then Sunday 4pm)Now as he's starting school in September,she's now asking (demanding)that I give up a weekend once a month as she won't see him as much once he starts Iv sent an email to her detailing every minute/hour we are both with him including hours asleep getting ready for school etc,and she gets 40hrs per month actual quality time with him more than I doShe doesn't believe that going out to soft play with friends,going to see family members constitutes as quality time,as well as reading etc on the evenings once he's at school.and doesn't realised how blessed she is to be able to getting him ready for school,and kiss him goodnight EVERY nightAll the above I have to squeeze into a short amount of time every weekend as well as trying to have 1 on 1 timeAs she works Wednesday and Fridays once the half term holidays etc start.i will be the one taking time off to take care of him,understanding that she has to work to provide.but the flip side is I will never get the opportunity to have a week or 2 off myself to take my boy on holiday.where she has done it twice already!Iv been flexible on many occasions when asked to bring him home earlier or later to suit her social calender(ironic that the Sunday she tried telling me that this is what she wants to do,I get a text asking to bring him home 2hrs later so she can go out for lunch with her mom)I would do anything for my boy,but being called unreasonable for not agreeing to these demands,when the bottom line is she cannot organise her time to prioritise her son without taking away my already small time with him,got my back up.iv every right to want more time myself,but because I understand her situation I don't. Am I in the wrong to say no

Our Response:
I think in this situation, you should suggest mediation in order to try to get your points heard and bring about a fair and mutual agreement. Please see link: here . Plus, link here which reinforces the idea that both parents should try to create an amicable relationship for the sake of your child. It does seem you are being more than fair - you just need to make your ex see that too.

Buster - Your Question:
Ex and I have now split after 8years. We do not talk as she has an injunction on me due to domestics. I am not allowed to talk to her however I have two children with her. Is she allowed to change their surname without my permission I have not seen them for 6 weeks now but she has been able to change their name by deed poll to her dads family name. I am named on both their birth certificates

Our Response:
It is highly unlikely your ex has been able to change your children's names by Deed Poll unless you gave written consent. Your ex may be able to change your children's names 'unofficially' i.e by using a new name in school and/or via her GP, but their names on passports and other official documentation would remain in your surname.

If your friend's ex is denying him access to his son and if she will not consider mediation in order to try to resolve the issue, then he would have to apply to court. Please see link here.

Pow - Your Question:
Hi there. My partner and I have just had a baby and his ex has become very difficult since the birth. They have a 7 year old boy together and they speak through a mediator as they cannot get along. We have the boy every other weekend, every Wednesday after school and every other Monday after school on the weekends we don't see him. We also have him on a Sunday night on bank holidays. She used to work in a school but her contract was ended. She is now looking for a full time job and has said that we now have to take him to school on the evenings we have him and have him half of all the school holidays. My partner is self employed and does not get paid holiday and pays child maintainace to the mother as the child lives with her. As much as we would like to have him more there is no one to take him to school and my partner will not be able to take 3 weeks off work in the summer holiday so we have offered to have him a week and pay towards childcare for the other 2 weeks. We have always been so flexible when she has wanted to change days and never miss a day or evening with him. Just to add they were never married but he is on the birth certificate. It looks as though we will have to arrange childcare and maybe a childminder to take him to and from school. Will this cost be shared between us? She refuses to work part time and wants a full time job and has no support from her family. Any advice on this situation would be grately received. Thanks.

Our Response:
If your partner can't agree with his ex, then this is really another question to take through mediation as there are no fixed rules. In an ideal world parenting should be carried out jointly, with both parents taking joint responsibility of the child or children (which involves taking and picking up from school and equally shared school holidays). I personally do not think your partner's ex's request to take his son to school on the mornings after you have him overnight and share school holidays is not unreasonable - the burden cannot always fall to the primary carer. Neither are your suggestions of helping towards childcare. In many situations, much of the day-to-day childcare falls on the primary carers which means they are restricted with regards to working, whereas often the non-resident parent has no restrictions. If we want parental equality, both parents have to pull their weight and that often means re-jigging work commitments etc as primary carers often have to do. However, this is also about mutual negotiation and decisions should always be made with regards to what is first and foremost in the child's best interests. I hope you find a mutual way around this.

Recently split with my partner of 13 years, I'm unsure as to what my rights are as a father. She's reeling off a list of demands, some financial and regarding my time with the children. I like to know where I stand before accepting or declining some of her requests

Our Response:
There are no 'specific' rights except parental responsibility rights, please see link here(if you have parental responsibility). It is preferred that access is negotiated mutually. However, if there are disagreements and you both cannot come to a suitable arrangement, then mediation is the next option, please see link here. Court is the last resort if neither of you can agree even via mediation. The article here may help you further.

My disabled son has not seen his father for 8 months because of our relationship breakdown my son loves his dad n his dad lives him too problem is we have no contact with each other as we parted on bad terms how can I arrange for them to.see each other without going to court

Our Response:
Much depends upon whether your son's father wishes to see his son. You cannot force a reluctant parent to see their child, neither would a court be able to impose this. Your only option would be to suggest to your ex via letter or email that you try mediation. You can both attend mediation separately and try to come to a resolution via a mediator, please see link here .
