Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
What exactly would you like to know?
In fact you have no need to meet unless you wish to do so - nor does your son need to be actively involved with her at this time.
Both his responsibilities and his rights only begin when the baby is born.
That is the moment at which he become liable for maintenance (if the child is his) which will be 12% of his gross earned income.
The law says that a child is entitled to ocntact with both parents so if your son does wish to see the child he can try and discuss a pattern of contact with his ex using Family mediation
www.familymediationcouncil.org.uk - and if that fails he can apply to the Court for a Child Arrangement Order
The contact agreed does need to be focussed on the needs of the child - and will change rapidly in the first year as the baby grows.
I am not sure that this covers all that you want - please let me know what further information you need
Try and help him not see it this way - after all the baby may not be his
He should ask for a DNA test as soon as the child is born
That is fine - anytime
