hi everybody, my daughter has just turned one, and her dad walked out (for the third time) on decmeber 29th, 16 weeks ago.
he has not seen her or even bothered paying anything towards her.
after 6 weeks i sent him an email to see what was what, and he replied and we argued via email, about what was said between us bla bla bla. i told him its not about us its about our daughter, i sent pictures to him offered him to come to the house and see her etc but he didnt even reply
before he left though he told me he will get my daughter taken off of me, because i had post natal depression and that his brother in law is a social worker so he can pull strings to get this sorted so i will never see my daughter again. so i cant trust him to take her out at all.
he didnt even send her a birthday card two days ago.
he says he is going to go to a lawyer, i just want to know what my rights are, i live in scotland though so know all laws are different, but can i stop him from seeing her?
before he left she always cried when she was left alone with him, his family never bothered with her either the only saw her once and that was when she was 6 days old.
he doesnt deserve to be her dad, i know she deserves to know him but he never bothered with her when he was here, always wathced tv never got up during the night etc.
what should i do
