My husband is step dad to my eldest boy and his biological dad has parental responsibility.


We meaning my eldest son and my 6month old son and husband all live in Southport UK and


my eldest sons dad lives in Bootle Liverpool but we as a family are looking at moving to Cumbernauld Scotland.


Can my sons dad stop us if he has parental responsibility.


Especially if we are saying we will bring him to him during school holidays and pick him up during school holidays

this meaning he has no travel cost at all and would see him for 52 days during any of the scottish school holidays

which is the equivalant of what he has him now he has him every saturday now.

I think if you were planning on moving to somewhere like New Zealand or Canada, there might be some hassle, but Scotland.. I cant see your Son's father would have any grounds to object or prevent you.


What age is your Son ?


And, do you have sole custody with your ex having visiting rights ?

Found this on a site for Fathers with Parental Responsibility.........


Fathers do not really have a specific right to see their children or to have PR. Instead, the law focuses on PR and the rights and duties it gives a parent.

PR is a legal status that means you have a duty and the authority to look after your child.

PR gives you a right to contribute towards the upbringing of your child in a safe and secure environment.

If you have PR, this does not mean you can override the mother's wishes and decisions, or her right to make everyday decisions concerning the child. Mothers and fathers should try to agree on decisions regarding the child together. If major issues cannot be agreed upon, you will most likely end up in court and a judge will determine the outcome.


It should be noted that once or if you have PR, you do not obtain any extra rights to see your child.


Any advice I give is honest and in good faith.:)

If in doubt, you should seek the opinion of a Qualified Professional.

If you can, please donate to this site.

Help keep it up and active, helping people like you.

If you no longer require help, please do what you can to help others
