What is the name of your state? maryland
i am currently pregnant. the father is married to someone else which i did not find out about until after i told him that i was pregnant. he has since told his wife about the affair, the two of us have broken up, and they are working on fixing their broken marriage.
basically the two of them are nuts. (ie. threatened already to take my child away from me then the next day stated that they will have nothing to do with my 'demon' child etc...)
i will spare the other crazy details for now and just skip to the simple question.
i do not want to put the father's name on the birth certificate at birth.
so what rights would he then have as far as any type of visitation?
is there any time limit for claiming paternity?
can he order a dna test? if so can he then request he be put on the birth certificate?
can i get child support without him being on the bc?
and if he can do these things then can i request that his wife not be allowed to see my child? especially if i can prove her threats against him?
all help is much appreciated and please do not criticize me as i have seen much of on this board. not everyone is so lucky to have a great legal education!
