It's not every day I come on here actually LOOKING for the advice but here we go. One of my guys approached me this morning, His (unmarried) missus is about to give birth in 3 weeks, he spoke to the DE, can I have a quarter etc. DE response, you can, but she can't live there. Having looked at the regs, it quite clearly states that if the natural parent stays for more than 56 days out of a year, you lose Paystat 2 and subsequently lose the quarter. Has anyone had any dealings with this before and staffed up a case etc etc etc? In all my years, this is without a doubt one of the most OBSURD rules I have come across, especially given that a nanny / au-pair can stay 24/7 but not the natural mother.
