If my wife cannot take all 16 weeks of her maternity leave, can I take more than 4 weeks of shared parental leave?

No, shared parental leave is limited to 4 weeks.

If your wife cannot take all 16 weeks of her maternity leave (for example, because of a change in employer), she forfeits the remainder.
