I am a 19 year old student, fell pregnant with twins. first the babies father said he can't be the father, now he threatens me that he will get custody over them legally. his father phoned my mother and was very demanded, saying we weren"t together when I fell pregnant, and demands a dna test. his mother sms-ed me telling me to leave their son alone, and says DNA as proof. The father kept on threatening me. The social worker at university said I must just ignore, and get some legal advise. I am scared of him and his family, can expect anything from them. I know that my chlidren need their father in their lives, but I really don't want to live in fear, of what they can do to us. I don't trust them at all, as they in the past told my parent the most horrible things about me, even tried to have me jailed for something I did not do. he lies alot, and his parents believe him. My parents support me, we are a very close family, and I know that they will help me financially, until I can support them after my studies. he, in the meantime, quite his studies and started a job. Will this be sufficiant enouph to take my babies from me, I am so scared!
