Customer Question

hi i am looking for some advice. i have a 2 week old baby from a relationship which has recently ended. i have not denied the father contact with the baby but he has threatened me with solicitor to gain access. we both attended a MIAM separately i was willing to proceed down the mediation route however he does not want to do this. i am currently on maternity leave so my salary is a lot less than it normally is so i cannot afford going to court. could you tell me what my options are?

He has seen the baby while I was in hospital. He has not asked for any particular access he decided to go to a solicitor in response to my asking him not turn up at my house without advanced notice.
