Would access to NHS services available to a baby who has been through open heart surgery in the u.s.a & is now with a heart condition that needs a paedeatric cardiologist for life for monitoring & at least for the immediate future requires occupational & physical therapies be a strong point to make the argument that the baby is better off in the uk with the father rather then with the mother who chooses to go to the u.s.a which is where the child and mother were born?
Father has been paying in thousands to provide for these therapies & it will continue to cost that, mother has not income & is pretty much without the father a dependent of her mother who is disabled.
How strong would the fathers case be for the child to remain in the u.k if he was married to the mother in the u.k & a spouse visa has now been obtained too to live in the u.k.
by shared care do they mean being in the same house caring for a child ?
I was actually there for the birth, stayed after birth for 2.5 weeks, then came back to uk & flew back out 1.5 week later when baby fell ill & was taken to hospital & spent two weeks there again, baby as yet is not even 3 months, if after this baby comes to the u.k & stays here for 6-9 months with father & mother in the house, would that not change the picture somewhat about fathers involvement at that stage ?
If I am not married to someone, she is in the u.s & i am in the u.k & we have a child that is born in the usa & is with her & she no longer wants to have anything to do with me? can she come after me for money etc ? how would that work & what can she do ?
If the child needs regular therapies which are costing thousands every month which the father has been paying & the child is eligible for free NHS care in the u.k can he obtain custody of the child from the mother in the u.s ?
