Our expert says:
It doesn't sound as though there are any good easons to encourage him to see his child now, after years of neglect, and one wonders what his motives are. I wonder if he might be more interested in disturbing your new relationship ?
Though a connection seems obvious, I understand that in law maintenance and visitation rights are not connected. You could potentially go to court and ask him to be required to pay maintenance, I don't know about back maintenance -
But a court if asked to decide on whether he should be allowed to visit the child should look at what would be in the best interests of the child. TO allow him to visit after all this time, and then maybe not again, would do her no good at all.
