    Try again, deadbeat.
    They cannot terminate her rights based on something she did before the OP impregnated her. Not. Going. To. Happen.
    Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
    Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

    Personally, I am beginning to think that this guy is a troll. I find it hard to believe that someone that makes over 100k a year could be as uneducated as this guy appears to be.

    So... just wanted to let you know that at first, I was planning to help raise this kid. But then a series of events occurred in which all of my friends and family, my therapist, my mentors have all unanimously told me that getting the mother out of my life permanently is their strongest recommendation. They all say it would be a catastrophe for me to be involved with her going forward and the unanimous wisdom is that I should have nothing to do with this child, even if it is mine. Never before in my life have so many people I trust been so forthcoming in their opinions on what I should do with my own life. Of course, I will pay the support dutifully, and if the child emancipates itself and wants to come live with me then it is welcome to. Just saying for you all... Sometimes the relationship between the parents is such that having them both in the child's life would be wore than just having one. She's already shown how she will use the child against me and for power. It's not my weakness that is the problem. It's that she is a predator, a scam artist, she does this kind of thing (manipulate and destroy men) for a living.

    So you are surrounded by deadbeat individuals. NICE. Glad they are all worthless and want you to walk away from your child. Try never having sex again, okay? It is better for the world if you don't.

    A lot of people can agree on a course of action... ... ...and still be wrong.

    You created a child, and therefore have a duty to said child. Simply meeting your financial obligation is not going to make you a good parent.

    And if this Mom is such a terrible person, why would you not want to counter her behavior by being the BEST POSSIBLE parent to this child and give him/her a real chance at future. Even if it mean inconveniencing yourself by being tied to Mom through the child?

    By this logic, you are deciding it is better that the child be damaged than you.

    Why? I didn't know she was this way when we had sex. Also, she's a con-artist: This means she is a master of persuasion. She built my confidence in her with lies. I fell for the trap. This means I am gullible and trusting, not that I lack character.

    Why the insults?
    Because, per you callous postings we, as VOLUNTEERS, don't have to with-hold our opinions.
