a bit of background.. me and fob broke up when I was 35 weeks pregnant as I found him cheating. we argued throughout the last 6 weeks of my pregnancy over babys name, if he was going to be at the birth etc... I recieved nothing but grief off him!! I gave birth to alfie and rang him up straight after to tell him and I got a load of abuse off him cause I didn't let him know when I was in labour (my mum text him saying I was having problems, things were moving VERY quickly - but he slept through this text). he cane to the hospital straight away to see alfie, he came to my house the following 2 days and then after that he made excuses. the next time we saw him, alfie was 4 weeks old and it was when we got him registered. we haven't seen or heard from him since.
I phoned the CSA yesterday as I think it's every fathers right to financially support their child, but I'm beginning to think it was the wrong thing to do.
I don't want to see fob, and I have spoken to a solicitor when alfie was first born for general advise - she said that if he ever want access to do it through a children center as supervised visits only as he cannot be trusted alone.
also I dont know what he is like financially at the moment!!!
should I carry on with the claim or cancel it. I'm so happy being a single parent, but I don't want alfie to grow up without a dad.
any advise is hugely appreciated. I'm in such a mess at the moment
the reason he can't be trusted is that he has anger problems and has made many threats to me whilst I was pregnant and soon after given birth, one threat said that he was going to take alfie off me as I'm a irresponsible mother... and i have no idea how he thought that one up because alfie is my world and i alway put him before anyone and anything - but my solicitor said to keep things supervised until he has built up the trust.
