My unborn baby's father is not in the picture, help!

I am currently 5 months pregnant and the baby's father cut all ties with me. He denied everything and blocked me online and my phone number. I don't know where he lives because at the time we were dating he was currently moving. We broke up before he settled into his permanent house. I can't contact him or see him and I don't know what to do. He decided he wants nothing to do with me or the baby. I'm scared that when I sign my child's birth certificate they are going to ask information about the father that I don't know. Are they going to take my child away? I don't know what to do.

If you put him down on the Birth certificate, that does not mean anyone takes your child from you. I would establish custody for sure and name the man as the father. If he wants to contest it, then the court would order a paternity test and then go from there. I would sue for child support and visitation to be set up.

They won't take your baby away just because you don't know information about the father. I know this for sure, because my oldest daughters father is unknown, and it says so on the birth certificate.
