Our family law team is headed by Nighat Sultana, who is a Solicitor and Director. Other members of the team include Ms Sarita Sansara and Ms Iqra Ahmad.
One of the most common complaints of fathers caught up in the family law system is that no one truly listens to them and their needs. When fighting for your rights as a father, Nighat and her team will take the time to hear your story, and advise you on the best course of action to restore your parental rights.
Unmarried Fathers Rights
In general terms, a mother is deemed to have “parental responsibility” for her children whether or not she is married to the father. For births registered in England or Wales; as a father you have parental responsibility if:
• The child’s birth was registered on or after 1st December 2003, and you are named on the birth 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 marry the child’s mother.
• If the Court grants you an Order giving you parental responsibility.
If you have separated from the mother of your child/children and need legal advice to establish where you stand in relation to Child Arrangement Orders and contact with your children, Nighat and her team can work with you to reach an amicable solution with your ex-partner.
