Father of Baby Left me pregnant

This is my first time posting but I feel compelled to tell my story and ask for advice from the community.

My baby's father left me when I was 7 months pregnant while I was living in Alabama with him. I was originally from Michigan and had been living with him when I found out I was pregnant.

He broke up with me after a fight we had one night and told me he wanted to be a 'team' even though he didn't want to live with me anymore. I had no family or friends in Alabama and made the difficult decision to move back to Michigan and have my baby there.
I left at 37 weeks pregnant and my family had to come down and move me back to Michigan. I was constantly wondering why he left me and thought he must have found someone else. When I delivered my baby in Michigan he drove up from Alabama and was in the delivery room. Because I still loved him I put his name on the birth certificate and hyphenated our last names (big mistake). I soon came to find out that

Well, you didn't finish, but if the next words were "I found out that he was cheating", it has no bearing on his paternity, nor on his rights to co-parent and have a relationship with the child. In that regard, his rights and yours are the same.
