As you know, the guiding principle hould always be what's best for the child, and to avoid EVER using the child as a weapon in a battle between the "adults". While your ex's concerns are understandable, it is not fair to deprive the child of good contact with her father, just because she might become used to the presence of your current partner. A court might be prepared to decide on fairer terms of access.
Drama makes sense that something significant depends on whether you are married to or about to marry this new woman, in which case the child would need to get to know her, or whether this is a more temporary arrangement she might find confusing.
mawisa, I can't deal with new questions tacked on to earlier questions, but you should go to the maintenance court and ensure that this deadbeat dad at least is required to pay proper maintenance for his child.
