Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm how old your daughter is now and if you reside in England or Wales?
Thank you for your question
My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.
So long as the child is resident in the Uk then it is UK Children Law which applies.
In the Uk the law says that a child is entitled to ocntact with both parents and the Courts will enforce this if necessary.
If he is the biological father then he can apply for contact and it will be granted in some form despite all the issues that you have listed.
However given the issues you can limit contact to a Contact Centre (www.naccc.org.uk) at least for the first six months or until he has built a relationship with the child.

I appreciate that this is not the news you wanted but sadly I can only tell you the law as it is.
Please ask if you need further details
I apologise for my colleagues interjection. It is correct that your child will have legal rights to a relationship with the father unless there are child protection or welfare concerns. The father does not require parental responsibility to seek a child arrangement order to see the child.
Parental responsibility only entitles the father to be consulted and be involved in relation to major decisions in the child's upbringing such as health, education, religion and removal from the UK - as he does not have PR you do not need to consult him regarding such issues but he will be entitled to seek arrangements for contact.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
As My colleague correctly says the list that you are giving relates to Parental Responsibility and not Contact
In addition - for the avoidance of confusion - he would be given time to establish a relationship before any decision is made about Parental Responsibility
If you believe that you may wish to leave the UK then you will need to do it sooner rather than later - if he does start having contact then he may well obtain PR and at that point moving could be more problematical
