[Solved] Home Address of the Child

Hi all, just joined this group & heartening to see the help & advice offered & to know I am not alone.

My question is relatively simple in that:
As the absent parent with Parental Responsibility, do I have the legal right to know where my daugher is living? i.e. my ex refuses to disclose her (and thus my daughter's) home address.
My daughter is 15 and turns 16 soon and as always I am concerned re her health and wellbeing.

Thanks M

Hi and welcome.

Your ex has no obligation to give you the address (unless a court orders otherwise). If you have concerns about your daughter's welfare, you could speak to children's services.

Many thanks for the prompt response & your answer would appear to prove why it was difficult to find otherwise on Government websites.
My concern stemmed from a bigger issue that I shall not bore you with, but does not help in that I quite simply can't see her, send her any letters, send her any gifts or generally know she is in a safe environment.
I suspect that my ex potentially edits/deletes my texts and e-mails & I really did not want to send a letter/Xmas card to her school as that sounds strange albeit a last resort.

Thanks

M

I would actually consider sending mail to the school - assuming you have Parental Responsibility, I would have a word with the school and see if they want to have a word with your daughter for approval, rather than just send it out of the blue.

This must be very hard for you. If you have parental responsibility you could ask the school to send you reports.

You say you can't see her or contact her. Has a court ordered that or is it just the mother's wishes that have created this situation?

Although courts are unlikely to make orders for a child her age, if you have PR, you can contact the school as champagne has said.
