I am now a single mother of a beautiful 3 1/2 months old girl. Her dad and I were gonna; in his words; "work us out." He has yet to even meet his daughter and now that he has been served paternity and child support papers wants nothing to do with her. In fact, he has told me that he intends on signing his rights away so that he no longer will be physically, emotionally or financially responsible for her. However in our state that is not how it works. Signing over your rights in Iowa only negates your responsibilities physically and emotionally so he would still have to be financially responsible for her. I have also learned in the last few weeks that he has had another girlfriend (whom is rumored to be pregnant) while we were suppose to be working on our relationship. I guess my question is; Is it worth fighting with him over him taking care of his child and being in her life?
