I have a 3 year old daughter and Im going to get to the point im so tired of trying to get him out to see her and he has only seen her at 2 months 5 months 13 months and 3 years I have all rights to her he just pays child support and the only time he comes out is to sleep with my ex friend at the time I don't want him in our life because all he is doing is confusing my daughter he was better off leaving us alone and he try to set rules for her when ive been there since day one for her changing her feeding her teaching her everything making her laugh cuddle with her when she gets hurt and he never thought she was his until I got the test done I think it would be best for my daughter if he just let go if he isn't going to step up

"Can lesbians get this tooo"?????
Then I think once you get married your husband can share custody with you over the child.

I don't think you can take his rights away unless he is willing. I think it would be in the baby's best interest to at least be civil with each other. Don't forget at one point you cared deeply for each other.

I'm so sorry you are going through all that. It's not easy but you're better than him. Just please don't tell your baby bad things about her daddy. That won't help and she'll resent it later in life. Stay positive mom! I'm rooting for you and your baby!

You need to make sure this dad is paying child support and then he may begin to understand his responsibilities to his child. But he may not even understand what he is supposed to be doing for the child. He may think he is supposed to wait until she is older or he may not even know how to talk to her or what to do with her when he is there. Dad's are not ready made.

Sit down and try to talk to him about what it means to be a father. Ask him if he understands how important he is in your daughters life. He may feel he is not needed or required because she is too young or a girl. Some guys do not get that they are very important to a child as the dad, you may have to tell him! : D

This may be too complicated for you to handle alone. Be sure to get some assistance from a help organization or someone. If the dad has mental issues, then your child's well being is the main thing you need to consider and you may want some help in sorting everything out with the dad.
Good luck and take care! : D

I don't know much about law, I'm studying to be a doctor O_O but I think you can just file a court order to take away your baby daddy's rights, and since you're not married (you're not married, are you?) they will just give you full custody and the dad will have to pay child support. Then I think once you get married your husband can share custody with you over the child.
