I have applied for my Decree Absolute but it has been over a year since the Nisi so I need to provide a statement that we haven''t reconciled and haven''t been living together. The guidance notes also say that I need to inform them of any children born to either of us and whether they are to be considered a child of the family. I have had a baby recently with my new partner but do not understand the part about whether I want her to be considered a child of the family and what implications this may have. Can anyone advise please?
I wouldn''t have thought that your baby isn''t a "child of the Family" as your x2b isn''t responsible for her in any way, or has taken on any responsibility for her because she was fathered by your new partner.
Children of the family are those which are born in the marriage, step-children or adopted children, or have lived with the married couple as part of that family.
