I need help. My daughters father who has never seen her has contatced me. I am scared to death to share her becuase I barely know him. We had only dated a short time. He wants to now be involved in her life. My family and boyfriend will not be supportive of him being a part of her life, but I feel like I should allow her the chance to have a relationship with him. Does anyone have any advice for me?

Do whatever you feel is right, but IMO if a man dumps my child and 6 years later decides he wants to be a part of her life I'd tell him to go take a hike! Too little to late IMO.

However, if you decide to let him see your dd I'd make it supervised once here and there, and that is it.

Do not let him see your child. he had no interest up until now. ask your self why is that.
if you let him see the child it will turn into court proceedings. from there you will lose your rights. you will be forced to let this man take your child every other weekend. every other holiday. two weeks out of the summer. this man will have the right to know every thing from medical, to school. to relegion. you will not have custody of your child. it will be considered 50/50 him have the same rights as you, to know all about this childs life.
you will have what is called physical custody of your child. this only means the child lives with you. The court will order him to pay child suport. he will get sick of doing this so he will try to prove you unfit to take your child away from you. it has become very common for courts to take children away from their mothers and give them to thier fathers.
Do not let him see this child.
