I am in the middle of a court case at the moment, my ex partner was charged with common assault on me and my 13 years old daughter of which he is denying. I am 26 weeks pregnant with his child. I am frightened that he will get non supervised visit rights to my son when he is born. I am NOT going to put him on the birth certificate and also I do know that if he requests the dna test that I can rfefuse and the courts can't do anything about that. He has a mental health problem and he says undiagnosed Hyper Mania, i don't know if he will get rights to my son, I am very afraid...please any advice, but facts is what I need please.

I see, yes apparently if they do find him guilty, of which they said they probably will....they will make him do this course and make sure he gets the help he needs, if he gets the help he needs and stops being in denial about the whole insane thing, then I haven't a problem with supervised visits.

You need to have him evaluated for his mental problems. The court can make him do it. If he refuses to comply it will look really bad on him. That is what we are doing to my husband's ex.

He isn't on any meds...we are getting an injunction against him to keep himj away from me and my other children, just have to wait and see what happens in court in Dec, when I'm 37 weeks pregnant, I really am not happy about going through all of that stress so late in my pregnancy!

Actually, if the court orders you to do it, you will have to allow the paternity test. If your ex pushes it. All you can really do is show proof of your ex being abusive towards you and your daughter and the judge will take that into consideration. His mental problems more than likely won't have a factor. That is something that he cannot help. On the other hand, you can have it to where if he is not taking his medication, then he can lose his non supervised visitation.

Not yet Vicki, It's in the middle of victim statements and everything..I am up to my eye balls with the case and I will have to see a lawyer about the child contact as a separate issue..
