I'm currently 13 weeks pregnant to someone who was meant to be a friend of mine. When he found out I was pregnant, he went on a dating site and started talking to a girl. That weekend he invited her into our house while I wasn't home and has been seeing her since. He didn't tell her about our situation, I did. I have tried to keep the father involved and kept him updated with the baby even though he never replies or if he does it's very short. He never messaged me to see how things are. I always message him first. If I don't, then I don't hear from him for weeks. He has called me names and threatened me. Although most of this was said in person so I can't do much with that. I no longer live with the father. I've moved back home to my parents and he moved out with this new girl. One of our mutual friends told me that when the baby is here, the father is planning to take my baby away and live in Coffs Harbour which is 6 hours away from me for the first year of the baby's life. What rights does he have? And what rights do I have as a mother under the family law act? The father has never been to any of the doctors appointments or ultrasounds and has not once helped pay for anything. He also goes out drinking every weekend and has 2 drink driving charges. I do not have any criminal charges and have 3 beautiful nieces, and live with one of them so I'm always around kids. The father of my child tried to talk me into an abortion for weeks, and I refused every time because I do not believe in them. He has accepted the fact that I am keeping it but makes no effort to be involved or even reply when I try to involve him.
