Fathers rights not on birth certificate?

(10 Posts)

The father of my baby is a violent and abusive alcoholic and I do not want my baby anywhere near him.

Can somebody tell me what rights he has to the child if he isn't on the birth certificate?

Thank you.

If he is the Dad and you do not put him on the birth certificate, he can still take you to court to demand a dna test and would be granted pr by the court if he was the father.

Has he been violent and aggressive to Your Baby?

The baby has not been born yet, I left the father when I found out I was pregnant as he was very volatile. (he had even attacked his own father)
I have had to have police involvement throughout my pregnancy and they have advised i take an injunction out to keep him away from me.

It isnt about his rights, its about the babys rights to have access to and a relationship with their parent.

In this instance, get the injunction, but a court may insist on supervused access at a contact centre.

The thing is I'm almost certain he doesn't want the baby. it's just another way for him to hurt and control me.
He didn't want to spend any of 'his' money on baby when we were together and did not want to look after baby so I could work on an evening, or do any night feeds. He said that was mothers job, yet now is doing anything he can to try and get at me.
