I want to put the father of my child on child support but I do not want him to have any kind of rights to her. Is this possible to do? I know visitation rights and child support are two different things, but I dong want him in her life. Just wondering if that is possible to do.

Is there a history of violence or abuse? Why are you so adamant in keeping a Father away from his child?



If he's not on the birth certificate then you would have to prove he is to be able to get support. You would then have to prove him to be a danger to your child in court to take away his parental rights, unless he is willing to give them up himself.



He automatically has rights if he is the Father, it's not up to you to pick and choose.

A little back story. We were together for 3 years and throughout those years I've realized he was not a stable person. He physically abused me mostly when he drank. When I found out I was pregnant he and also his girl on the side told me that my daughter was unfortunate news and that neither of them wanted her her. I stayed with him for the sake of our daughter until one night he came to my house drunk accusing me of talking to this girl about him and he pushed me around and pushed me into the shower. Resulting in me getting a busted lip and bruise down the left side of my face. He has another daughter with another woman who he sees one a daily basis. I'm not sure what kind of father he is bc he has only seen our daughter once, the day she was born.He has not tried to see her since then and every time I try to communicate with him or send pics or set up times for them to meet he doesn't respond. I wanted him to be in our daughter's life but how he has treated her since day one I don't think he wants that, also I don't ever want him to touch her as he did me, even if he only did it bc he was drunk. Right now I'm just worried about him coming back in a few years and wanting custody of her.
