    So I’m new here and hoping to get some support.

    My and my 18month old daughters dad split beginning of November. Got back together to give it another go around Xmas but I ended it beginning of Feb as he cheated AGAIN.

    Since we split its been very rocky between us but I keep trying for my daughters sake. He’s left me with £3000 debt and no support financially, physically or emotionally.

    I have no idea where in the country he is or what he is up too. He has a very colourful past and present by the sounds of it. The last I heard from him (about a week ago) he text saying my daughter will only be a memory to him and wishes us all the best so I’ve taken it as he wants nothing to do with her. I’ve tried text and calls since then.

    What does this mean for us? Financial support? My daughter growing up with no dad?

    He has another child who is 11years old and he is in contact with her regularly. It’s breaking my heart for my daughter and I do want him to have a relationship with ours but I don’t want him to be in and out of her life.


    I feel lost with no sense of direction and what to do next?

    Hi Jadesierra

    I am so sorry to hear this. It sounds very frightening and upsetting for you. I do think that it sounds as if you need professional help and it would be useful to see a solicitor or you could start by contacting Gingerbread directly for sound guidance on your rights and next steps.

    Very best wishes, Becky
