    Hi all,

    new to this but really after some advice. From anyone who may of been I a similar situation to myself.


    i have spilt form my ex partner now a while back do to unhappyness.

    it was quiet a mural split at the time but quickly turned sour when I deceived to move on.

    We both share custody to our son who is now 3 I have been in a new relationship now for a few months and would like to introduce my son to my new partner and her child who is a similar age.


    i put this point across to my ex and asked if she would like to meet up in a mural environment so we could be introduced thinking this was the best route.


    it was quickly thrown back at me saying the relationship was to fresh which I understood to a degree. I do a lot of commuting back and forth to see my son as and when Iโ€™m allowed access ( when it suits her)

    and overnight stay is becoming a problem as I have to rely on my parents to stop at theres.


    am I within my rights to introduce my child to my new partner and child? And if not what would be the reasoning behind it?


    i have read many forums which people have mixed reviews but am I within my rights would it back fire on me if the matter were to go to court for instance?

    thanks in adavance to any comments

    Legally, when you have custody or your child – on your days – you can introduce whoever you like. However that obviously isnโ€™t a good idea for children who could end up meeting lots of โ€œpartnersโ€ and being terribly confused and unsettled.

    I waited nine months before introducing my son. The relationship ended after 5 years and I havenโ€™t introduced anyone else since.

    Why not introduce your new girlfriend as just a friend to start with and go for a pizza together, see how they get on etc. Do it gradually, No need to over-night until your child is familiar & relaxed.
