My son was in a relationship with a girl 4 years ago, when the girl fell pregnant she didn't want anymore to do with him, in fact she used him to get pregnant!! she didn't put his name on the birth certificate, but too maintainance payments off him (she is now 3years of age) my son haven't been allowed to see his daughter for over 2 years as she said he would have to go through the courts and he hasn't had the money to pursue this, his ex girlfriend has now married, what rights has my son got in respect tpo having access to his daughter, he is worried that the new husband will want to adopt her, I would appreciate some advise please, yours sincerely ***** *****
Hi Clare, it was approx. 18 months ago may a little longer, she then started making excuses ,such as; Roxy wasn't well, or the visit upset her as she didn't know him, he worships his little girl and just want to spend time with her to build up a relationship, he has never missed a payment through csa, and has always bought her birthday and xmas presents, she contacted myself recently to say " Roxy has a new daddy now and she dosent want her upset. Clare this is so unfair!! I believe through accepting payments he has a right to see his daughter (which he is desperate to) and should have his name put on the birth certificate. There seem to always be help for the mothers, but not a lot of rights for the fathers. Is he eligible for legal aid to help him with the expences of taking her to court?
thankyou, Julie XXXXX
