You're correct. She DOES have a father. Her biological father. Your husband is her step father, and it's great that he wants to be involved, but you have no right to deny the man who provided 1/2 of her genetics.

Doesn't matter that you no longer like him, doesn't matter that the two of you don't get along. At one point, you got along enough to have sex, and create a child. That child is of both of you. What gives you sole possession rights? Answer: Nothing.

As Evelyn says, if you have a concern, document it. Present it in court, and get the situation rectified. Yes, he'll probably get some visitation of sorts, unless you can actually offer solid proof that he's a danger to the child.
