Our expert says:
This sounds even less than the usual long-diatance relationship. Surely in the circumstances you describe, even if cash was tight, he could make a plan, to work extra etc, to raise enough to visit you about the baby ? And at the very least he owed you a proper explanation and good communications.
So long as he admits it is his child, or you go to Maintnance Court and they can arrange paternity tests to prove this, then he will HAVE to pay maintenance, as is proper, for the child, whether or not your relationship continues.
Men, or people who like to think of themselves as men, need to understand that they can't just wander about making women pregnant and avoiding the costs of their choices.
If indeed he is seeing someone else, then he is behaving badly and ignoring his obligations.
Plan to raise the baby on your own, but with his required maintenance - if he says he can't afford maintenance, then he certainly can't afford another woman. IF that's the case, then maybe it's the boyfriend who needs to be aborted ?
