    Hi all,

    I have recently divorced and my 18 yo son is living with me, but my 8 yo daughter is living with her mum and her ex before me. My ex didn’t tell me – or her – she was doing this until the day before they moved in (after the family house was sold)

    Her ex is the father of my ex’s other daughter (if that makes sense!) and displayed very erratic behaviour during her upbringing. I was the (step) father to my ex’s daughter whilst he ignored her for 7 years whilst living close by. He’s also a heavy drinker and is prone to violent outbursts. I’m really worried for my daughter, who stays with me at weekends. I am on speaking terms with my ex, but we haven’t discussed this yet as it’s recently happened and I don’t know where to turn for help. I understood this would be a short-term measure whilst she found somewhere to live for her and my daughter, but now she’s saying she’s ‘not looking’ for a new home and I’m beside myself worrying about her.

    My question is, do I have any rights at all? Can I question this through any avenue, or do I just have to accept and live with it. Would something like mediation work (although she refused in the divorce). Any thoughts and help appreciated.
