When I found out I was pregnant, I pretended to be my father

When I found out I was pregnant, I pretended to be my father and email my baby daddy to do the right thing. Some words can be considered threatening but it is an empty threat I just want him to be there for our baby. Fast forward now, they are threatening to take the emails that got accumulated over time since April but I stopped. I stopped since Thursday. Can they sue me for it? He is/was responding to the emails.

I have a 3 month old grandson that has lived with me since

Hello, I have a 3 month old grandson that has lived with me since he was born along with his mother ( my daughter). The father left as soon as he found out she was pregnant, because he was 25 and my daughter was only 17 and has not been seen nor heard from since. At that time my daughter was living with her father and I was unaware she was involved with anyone especially a 25 year old man. The father of the child wanted her to abort the child and when she refused,he disappeard as he did not want any responsibility of the child and was afraid I would press charges due to my daughter's age. We have no idea of his where abouts and child be in Jamaica as this is where he and his family are from.My daughter then moved on with me . One the baby was born my daughter then told me she wasn't ready to be a mother and has only had minimal contact with the child. Recently she moved out leaving the child with me and said that she wanted to sign custody over to me. My question is do we have to find him to do this and what if we can't?JA: OK.

Annulment after 20 yrs of marriage and 32 yrs divorce and

? Annulment after 20 yrs of marriage and 32 yrs divorce and remarriage of 30 yrs. what is the purpose? Why does spouse want this...just for agitation...what is gained by this? Does Church give more benefits etc. if annulment, the marriage dissolved due to emotional and mental abuse and narcissistic behavior. This seems more of same, if wanted annulment and reasons where what Spouse States...should have done so then! Now at age 72 I must go to tribunal, to contest his accusations. I have lupus and stress aggravates my condition..don't have the strength...that is why I left him! A big big bully. R there reasons to benefit the petitioner by the new Pope? I don't understand this...4 children and 10 grandchildren ...?

Me and my partner had decided we wanted to get pregnant.

Hello, Me and my partner had decided we wanted to get pregnant. I was the one who decided to get pregnant first I bought a home insemination kit and took the test and found out it had worked. After I found out I was pregnant my wife decided that she was not ready for a baby, and asked that I get an abortion. i however have different views, and am ready to have this child in my life. We have decided to get a divorce seeing as we just can't get past this among other things. we want to do this as peaceful as possible, and want to terminate all her rights to the child if she even actually has any. We would like to do this all before I give birth if at all possibe since we both agree. Is this possible?

I am a single mother, my daughter was born in February of this

I am a single mother, my daughter was born in February of this year. When I told her father that I was pregnant with her he said that he could not have a child right now and then he offered to pay for half the cost of an abortion. He has another daughter that lives with her mother in another state. He told me that he did not want to have another child with someone that he did not want to be with in the long run. I am fine with being a single mom with no child support. His name is ***** ***** her birth certificate. I just don'e want him suddenly showing up in a few years saying that he want some type of custody when he does not care about her now. If he would like to meet her and see her from time to time I am fine with that, I just don't want him to be able to take her away from me. What should I do to protect myself and her?

Pearl. I recently had a court hearing with my sons father.

Hi Pearl. I recently had a court hearing with my sons father. My son is 8 months old and his father hasnt been in the picture from day one. He told me when he found out i was pregnant to get an abortion or put up for adoption or he would make me because he didnt want a kid and that he just wanted to smoke and sell marijuana and party. I have a witness who was there and heard him say it. Ive always been scared of him and always feared for my safety with and around him. Now i fear not only for my own but my childs safety as well. I was granted sole physical custody of my son but now he also wants to bring me to court to change my sons last name. I am terrified of him harming myself or my son or inflicted mental and emotional distress.JA: OK. The Family Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: No i haventJA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Family Lawyer can help you best.

I am 17 weeks pregnant. I am married to a wonderful man that says even though he knows he is not the father he will be a good father and husband to me and my baby. The biological father called me last night and said that if I do not get an abortion in the next few weeks (20 weeks is the limit in Ohio) him and his lawyer fiance will come after me for full custody of my child.
