Hi all, I am after some help. I am booked in to see a solicitor next week to get some advice. I have an 11-year-old son. We have never lived with his father. We had split up and then I found out I was pregnant. Long story short, he wanted an abortion, I said no. When my son was born, he saw him. I thought it was important for my son to get to know him so I used to take him to his father's house every weekend for 7- 8 years so he could see him. He came to my house probably 5 times in 8 years. When at his house he never really played with him just sat on computer playing games or music. I got sick of this and said no more. Over the past 3 years, he has asked to see my son. I have never said no but have instead said that he can come to my house or we can meet at a park or McDonalds or something. He refused. Instead, he wanted to take him out without me. I wasn't comfortable with the idea. So he did not see him in 2.5 years except for one time last year he came to watch him play a game of soccer. I also maintained a relationship with my son's grandparents, taking him to visit them, send photos, etc. He is now wanting to see him and take him for visits overnight, etc. Due to incidents when my son was younger, he does not want to see his father and says that he does not like him. The father said if I don't cooperate, he will take me to mediation and then family court. He is not listed on the birth certificate and he has never paid one cent in child support. Where do I stand legally under Family Law? Does he have a right to come and demand to see him even though he has done nothing over the past 11 years? Is my son old enough to say that he wants nothing to do with him? I am all for making a parenting plan and letting him see my son, but I know he will be difficult and push for family court order. Any help is greatly appreciated.
