Dispute with a co-parent
A dispute with a co-parent can raise complex legal issues under fertility and family law in the UK. Co-parenting disputes can be particularly challenging in cases where:
- The parties did not enter into a written co-parenting agreement.
- The parties artificially conceived a child by private arrangement.
- There are international aspects.
- There are complex personal dynamics (e.g. longstanding friendship, medical issues, social, religious and cultural issues, financial differences).
Co-parenting disputes can encompass a wide range of issues including:
- Legal status and identity of a co-parent.
- Amount of time a child spends or resides with a co-parent.
- Exercise of parental responsibility by a co-parent.
- Financial provision for a child by a co-parent.
- Nature and content of a co-parenting agreement.
