EX HUSBAND USING DAUGHTER TO PROMOTE BUSINESS

Answered 2 years ago

My ex has started a clothing business and his website is almost exclusively using pictures of our 12yo daughter modelling clothes. We co-parent 50/50 and he didn't seek permission from me to use her as a model. We both post pics on FB, but to closed groups of friends. Legally can he do this? Wouldn't he need my permission also? Of course she's very excited and thinks she's now a model.

Legalities aside, as you are co parenting surely he could have checked with you. As would be the case if you were still together. Assuming as co parents you’re civil with each other and communicate well, could it be he thought you’d say no so decided to go ahead without talking to you first?

Legalities rule though

^ well yes but that doesn’t mean he was right. Legally she can do nothing, but this kind of thing could ruin their co parenting relationship.

Are you truly worried about her welfare or are you just looking for ammunition?

What sort of comment is this? I just dont get it. Even in my partnership I would get my husbands agreement before using photos of one of our children for advertising...so why wouldn’t this woman in a split expect the same? That said, I think you OP should raise this with ex as something you dont feel comfortable with and get feedback

^^ it’s a fair comment. Is she jealous he is doing well, is she just being picky! It’s very valid! Women are nasty and look for anything to fight over with their ex

Why do you have a problem with this?? You sound quite bitchy to be honest. I did clothes modelling as a child for various brands, my father was also a photographer, there’s nothing wrong with having photos taken for promotional purposes. It’s also good for her confidence I bet she feels very proud.
Be a bit more positive.

This just screams vexatious

Because your daughter is only 12 and photos of her will be published online, yes he should of talked it out with you. I would be upset if my ex was modelling my 12 year old online for his business without at least talking to me about it.
I don’t know just my opinion.

I hope he’s paying her!

No doubt she would be loving it and it would be great for confidence. Maybe look into getting her a professional portfolio done & she can use the photos for more work.

Considering paying her he could claim on tax he shouldn’t have an issue. The money could maybe even go towards a portfolio... also helps you not look like you are trying to make money on it yourself. Fuck he could probably claim on tax paying her plus write off a portfolio as a tax write off (written off as a bonus for your daughter ) win win

Legally in his time he can do whatever he please and as long as the child isn’t hurt or negatively affected there is nothing you can do. If your orders don’t state that and you yourself post photos to the internet you have little to no case especially if the photos aren’t inappropriate.
