RE A (JOINT RESIDENCE : PARENTAL RESPONSIBILITY) [2008] EWCA Civ 867

Mother's ex-cohabitee, who had treated the child as his own for the first two years of his life was given joint residence so as to confer PR on him. This was despite the man being found to be dominating and controlling and having covertly filmed the mother and child in their home. Mother was even prevented from informing the real father of his paternity and from introducing the child to him.
