My girlfriend’s ex came to see their daughter – and stayed for three weeks | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: MY girlfriend’s ex turned up at her house to see their daughter – and has now been there for three weeks.

I understand he has parental rights, but surely they don’t extend to her home?

I’m 32, my partner is 31 and we’ve been dating for the last nine months. Her daughter with her ex is three years old.

He has never been bothered about seeing his daughter – until I came on the scene. Now he’s always begging to visit.

A couple of weeks ago, my girlfriend gave in and let him come over to her flat for a playdate.

But when it was time for him to leave, he asked if he could stay the night.

Apparently, he had been sleeping on a mate’s sofa for the last month.

But three weeks on, he is still there. She has asked him to leave, but he won’t.

He says he is worried she won’t let him back in to see his daughter again if he leaves.

DEIDRE SAYS: You’re right – this man doesn’t have the authority to decide if and when he stays in her flat, especially if it is in her name.

I suggest your girlfriend contacts National Family Mediation (nfm.org.uk, 0300 4000 636) who can advise her on possible next steps.
