I am a single mom to my 18 mo. old daughter. Her dad and I dated briefly when lived at the beach for a summer. Long story short we broke up right when I was maybe 3 months pregnant and he never contacted me after. 'I guess did not want to be involved which I didn't care at the point because I did not end up liking him.
My daughter now, is 18 months old. earlier this year the very beginning of April her father had sent me a letter saying he would like to send me a monthly support check and to let him know how much.
I never responded to him because I was scared and nervous he would want to get involved after sending money.
So I just recently messaged him wondering if he would like to still send money. He said he would like to work something like that out but if I want solely money from him then he requests a DNA test done prior to sending a check and to think of a number, he also asked me what am I comfortable with his involvement being with THE child.(word for word, he said that)
I have a meeting with a lawyer tomorrow just to see what his rights would be and what I should do.(hes not on the birth certificate) Honestly if he would be willing to send a little money just for her support and stay out of the picture I would be just fine with that. He obviously does not care nor want to be in her life for the love..
I need some advice..anyone?
