During my pregnancy I found a lot of disturbing information out about my child's father. He threatened to take her from me, pushed me down in a public place. I became very concerned for my safety and my child's. I went to a women's shelter to seek advice and ended up filing 2 injunctions, I had a letter from my OBGYN that was dismissed. After a court hearing I was advised by the judge to begin a paper trail as he had begun stalking me. I went to the Sheriffs department and they told me I had no rights that he was able to bother me whenever he wanted because I was pregnant with his child. So I allowed him to take part in birth but refused to let him take her anywhere privately. After 5 weeks he stopped coming to see her. He is not on the birth certificate and has never paid child support.
