    you might find this article on parental responsibilty useful . if your children were born after 2003 and you are on the birth certificate , you probably have parental responsibilty .

    I wonder if you found the article helpful. You said very little about your relationship with your ex....how long you were together...or whether it would be possible for you to get her to go to mediation with you. Mediation is where a person trained not to take sides helps you and your ex partner agree on the best way forward for the kids. Do you think your ex partner might agree to attend. It can really help separated couples get on in the way they parent the kids. http://theparentconnection.org.uk/articles/family-mediation this article explains what it is about. I do hope this helps.
