When I found out I was pregnant, the "Sperm Donor" as I call him went into a downward spiral. At 6 months pregnant and on bedrest I was contacted by an 18 yr old who too was pregnant with his child. At 8 months I discovered a 17 yr old was also expecting. Neither went through with the pregnancies. Unfortunately, I had him in the room at my daughter's birth. I had hopes we could be civil....he is on the B.C. He gave me $20 and said "that should cover the first month" I was left with $30k in medical bills and no help. He has seen her 5x (3x I drove to him) He was always 3 hours late and stayed 10 min. She was 1.That was the last I heard from him. He now has a little boy and the mother and child are in same position. Can I file?He has not made any attempt to contact me and has not supported me or child other than the $20 given to me at her birth. I have been with my Fiance for 3 1/2 years. He has stepped in and is all my child knows as a "Daddy" which is what he is to her. We are getting married in March and he has asked to adopt her. Biological Father tried to get custody of his other son and case was dropped when he refused drug testing. Their are witnesses according to other mother that he is now distributing and consuming drugs. He is 29 and is dating a new 19 yr old. I feel my case is very strong against him. I just need advice as to what I need to do to get things started! We have discussed a court house wedding just to get things moving along. I am so afraid of him trying to take her from me. He is a very bad man and has a history of abuse as well.
