Children

My child’s father visits her once a week is he still allowed to do this?

The UK Govt guidance is that children under 18yrs can move between parents  – while children should not normally be moving between households, they recognise that this may be necessary when children who are under 18 move between separated parents. This is permissible & has been made clear in the guidance. UK Cabinet Minister Michael Gove has confirmed this on Twitter.
