I have a four year old son and I was in an abusive relationship with his father for 6 years. When I was in labor with my son they had to go and look for him to bring him to the hospital. When I brought my son home he immediatley wanted to start bringing him out around everyone. After that he began to neglect my son and not want to take care of him properly. He used to attack me in front of my son and my daughter who is now 8 years old. He would yell at my son and tell me things like get another man to take care of him. wouldnt be there for him when he was sick. He also hit me in my stomach when i was pregnant with my son and told me that he never wanted the baby inside of me anyway. After that we broke up for two years and in those two years he never reached out to me about our son when I would reach out the him he would call me bad names and ignore me at times. then I gave him a chance to see my son after having him put on child support. He is supposed to pay me $251.00 a month in child support because he does not have a job at all. He was recently robbed and attacked...and he had this huge cut in his head. He got upset because I wouldnt let him take the baby because of the type of lifestyle he lives. So what I told him is that he should just go on with his life and that i accept this as a loss because it is best if I continue to raise our son alone without him because it is way too stressful dealing with him for my son and its his lifestyle and the way that he is as to why I dont allow him to get our son. Its like it took having to put him on child support to get a response out of him. He is already $720.00 behind on child support. My question is am I wrong for taking a big step and raising my son alone and not allowing his father to be in his life?
