I'm a single mother who joined this site for advice. My daughter is 7 months old and I had to push to even get her father to claim her as his. I actually purschased a swab test so that he would start seeing her. I wanted to give him a chance to be involved and work out visitation without court. However he really liked the idea of being a dad more than actually being one and when I tried to talk to him about he is starting to get subtly verbally abusive and manipulative similar to a mentally abusive ex I had when I was younger. I'm concerned for both myself and my daughter. I don't want him to get even partial custody or visitation for both our sakes. Advise from other moms? I think he's being selfish and trying to antagonize me more so than wanting to be there for my daughter. I haven't kept him from her whatsoever, Just to keep that in mind. Advise?
