Default Re: Hey

So I'm nineteen years old, and just 8 months ago, I became a parent. The girl that had my child of course I wasn't with anymore and she came to me 5 months pregnant. But, I did all the math and it seems as if everything added up to me.

We went on with her pregnancy like everything was fine and I was even planning on marrying her after my son Leighton was born. For about a month after his birth, everything still went well but one day I left to go get something for my son and came back and she was furious, Idk what caused the change but since then, I haven't seen my son as much as I should and she's been trying to call another guy my son's father. As well as, she's pregnant again and she may have the baby right after Leighton's first birthday.

Sometimes I feel like I struggle with if I'm really my son's father but his features confuse me to the point where, I don't really care about it, I love him to death and she;s not allowign me to see him for childish reasons. I'm a full time student, I don't work because my parents provide for me though I want to work, and of course, I'm only 19. If I keep goign to school that kid will be better off. Any help or reasons she could be acting the way she is to me?

BTW, she;s holdign our relationship against me as if its a valid reason to keep me away from my son. (there it goes)

Default Re: Hey

Is your name on the birth certificate? If not, the first thing to do is become legally established as the dad. It sounds like you're trying to do the right thing and be involved as a parent, and while that involvement is financially limited at the present time since you're a student, the emotional support is priceless. Do what you can to establish paternity and a formal visitation schedule. There are others on this site that are much better informed than me about these things, but that much I know!
Best of luck to you.

They are usually a bit of both! Seriously, you have rights to see your son. LSL is good with this. You can get help at the family court in finding out what you need to file to seek visitation rights. Hopefully she'll see this and tell you a little better.

Welcome, Brian.
As has been said, you have an absolute right to see your son and be a very big part of his life. Your child's mother, of course, has an absolute right to a child support order, too.

You really need to get this stuff ironed out legally....

Welcome Brian!!! Go slow and act in the best interests of your son. Keep emotions out as much as possible. Get legal help as soon as possible. Good Luck!
