Contacting child's fathers family

Lilly - posted on 09/20/2014 ( 2 moms have responded )




I have a child who is nearly 6 months. When I find out I was pregnant her father told me if I kept our baby he would never speak to me again. I went through the whole pregnant alone. When she was 6 weeks old I emailed him info and a picture, he then called saying not to tell any of his family and they he would pay maintenance, which he has done. His family live no where near me so have no way of finding out. I send him pictures and updates and he never replies, apart from once saying not to speak to his family and to stay out of his life.
I am unsure whether or not I should let his family know about my daughter? I am unsure if they should know, or if it would effect her later in life if I never said anything! Please help.

And you need to get court orders filed for custody, child support and visitation.

Do you know his family? I agree to let his family know. I have been in your situation before. It's not fair to your daughter nor to his family for him to make a choice in there life's. He is his own person and has made his own discussion. Just be prepaired for a bad outcome :/ if they respond nicely than your lucky, but be prepaired. Don't give your address right away. Always remember it's all for her happiness now :)
