Myth
  Myth
“He/she is only my step-child so I have no rights even though I’ve been more like a dad to them than their own father.”
Fact
  Fact
There is normally a right to see the child regularly if it is in their best interest. A court would almost certainly award equal general rights as those of the natural parent, especially if the step-child has been looked after by you for some years. Note, though, that there may also be an obligation upon you to pay maintenance for that child.
