Dad’s Role

Unless your baby’s father is unstable or dangerous, it’s advisable to encourage him to be as involved as possible in the life of your child. Children benefit from knowing and getting love from both of their parents.

If you do decide that you don’t want the father in your baby’s life, the father can try to fight that in court, so be prepared for that if it may come up.

Child Support

It’s not unheard of for surprised dads-to-be to claim that they want nothing to do with the baby and that it’s not their problem. Though there’s no way you can force the dad to spend time with your baby, it is still his responsibility to provide child support. Legal action may be necessary to enforce this.
