Hey there @Needadvice sorry it seems that you have been put into a hard position. Do you have other children in your family (yours, or your partner and yours) other than his 10 year old daughter?

Sorry to read about your struggles. It must be frustrating for you not having a voice within the family.
Have you initiated conversation with your partner around this issue? Perhaps communication could be the key. Let him know how you feel if you haven't done this already. Alternatively, does he have a brother or family friend you could talk to about this? Sometimes, it can take someone else to point out angsts. Although....you naturally need to do this tactfully without him feeling other people are interfering with your family situation.
Try the communicating with him first. In a calm environment away from the children.

I think a great place to start might be calling ParentLine - you might find it helpful to go through all the details and what your feeling with a professional and then hopefully be guided towards some resources that are in your local area by them.
Have you heard of the service?
