ImThatGirl Posted February 8, 2007 Share Posted February 8, 2007 Does anyone have any experience or advise on this issue? Re-Cap - - > My bf dated a girl for 3 weeks last March. They split. She informed him she was pregnant. During the pregnancy, he went to some appt's/ultrasounds but it was limited contact for the most part. He went to the hospital for his daughters birth. Proceeded to visit his daughter at his ex's house since she was born. He had a paternity test and received results early January. He had his first attorney appointment last week. The attorney basically stated that "since his daughter is an illegitimate child, he has no rights" and that he should take advantage of the time his ex is allowing him to spend with her. He's offered child support and attempted to discuss it with his ex for weeks. She refused. Anyhow, apparently she has accepted that they are not getting back together (something he's been trying to make clear for weeks but she was unwilling to accept.) This morning she called and told him he needs to start paying X amount of child support. Fine. Biggest issue - she is not allowing him time with his daughter now. Her mom has their daughter most of the time (since his ex is back to work,) and his ex has basically stated that he'll get very little time with his daughter. Going back to the attorneys words... "you have no rights.." Does anyone have experience with this? I just can't fathom him having no rights to his daughter just because she was born out of wedlock. Anyone? Quote Link to comment
