my boyfriend has met his daughter for the first time a few months ago , but she doesnt know who he is. His absence and knowledge of him being the real dad is by the moms choice. Now that they are going to court for visitation how does my boyfriend tell his daughter who he is with leaving out that mom wouldnt let him around ?

He needs to tell her that he's not sure why her mother chose not to tell her, and leave it at that.
Plus, it depends on how old she is. If she's younger, it can be explained by saying that maybe mommy didn't want to confuse her or something along those lines.

I think in a situation like this all he can do is be honest but think about his daughters feelings as well. He doesn't want to be the "bad guy" but he also doesn't want to bash the mother or have his daughter look at her mother differently for her mothers decision.
