I really just want to get some perspective on the issue. Is anyone out there, being a single mum by CHOICE? I've fought, and will continue to try keep the biological 'father' of my son OUT of his life. Its been an extremly thought through decision, and if i could, i would get my ex to sign his rights over ... but am kind of scared to do so, incase it opens a court case of him trying for visitation rights. I can't even begin to describe how ridiculous the thought of him caring for a child would be, but yet, part of me worries. Im currently protected via and AVO and have been exempt from sseeking child support. I really dont want anything from this person...
AVO - Apprehensive Violence Order
and if u get EXEMPT from Child support - it means you have VALID reasons for the GOVERNMENT to NOT seek financial support from the father - due to extreme reasons (ie - domestic violence etc)
