i need some advice..
especially from anyone who lives in w.a.
I have a 4.5 year old daughter.
I was in a relationship with her 'father' when i fell pregnant.
he didnt want her and tried and pushed and pressured me into a termination..
but i couldnt do it..
in the end he became so nasty that i went overseas to live with family.
i asked him in 2009 if he would help out.. even just a box of nappies or something
and he replied 'i'd rather kill you both and then myself..i hope you both burn in hell' .. 'you're a useless lying ***** who got pregnant on purpose ( which i did not do ).. I will never let you sponge from me'.
so i left it.. because.. honestly i felt too intimidated...
too afraid of what he would do..
i am a fulltime student.. im working my rear end off trying to finish my social work degree as quickly as possible..
money is becoming a massive, massive issues..
i have paid for everything since before she was born..
and everything keeps just getting more and more expensive..
electricity, food, petrol, her dancing, gymnastics, school shoes.. school uniforms ect
i can't make ends meet.. and i am so sick and tired of the fact that he can't even pay half of a school dress.. nothing..
he is a computer scientist and earns over a 100 grand a year..
i am afraid of his reaction.. but i cant pay for everything on my own anymore.
i can't enroll her in dancing this term as i cant get the money together
and its not fair that she has to go without..when her father legally should help me pay for this kind of stuff.
so i have to be brave and do it for her sake.
he isnt listed on her birth certificate
so how do i do this?
has anyone done this?
can it be backdated to when she was born?
do i sue him?
what rights does he have?
will i have to ask his permission for everything ?
can someone help me please?
