Our expert says:
At this age, I believe that the child's views and interests should be paramount. Any father who can ignore his child for a decade, not even paying full maintenance, hardly has any claim for consideration now. Get a good lawyer, and ensure that the magistrate recognizes this, and hears from the child, and acknowledges the sheer cruelty in agreeing, refusing, agreeing, refusing, etc. The magistrate needs to be reminded that his central duty is the best interests of the child, not the wishes of a persistently absent bio father. It hardly matters WHY he is doing this, but how to stop him from doing it and getting away with it.
