To put him on BC he has to be physically present at the registrars office, if he is being nasty be aware that legally you will be expected to ask his permission before moving, going abroad and if he is on BC he technically has as much say in you and your babies life as you do. My ex was a total **** when we split he would keep my sons longer then he was supposed to just to exert control and upset me. You know better than me how likely he is to behave like that.

It makes no difference to maintenance, as if he denies being dad they will do a DNA test.

I certainly wouldn’t advise it as you use the phrase ‘fighting for him to be on the BC’. It’s not worth the hassle if he doesn’t want to be.
