Hi I posted on this about 5 weeks ago (just before I was due my little boy) and I was asking advice about maintenance. I was really unsure whether I was going to push for it and the father Of my little boy decided he didn’t want anything to do with him. After a lot of thinking and speaking to midwifes I’m going to apply for maintenance. My problem is he won’t sign the birth certificate which makes it difficult. After a lot of reading I have read that you can still receive maintenance as they will ask the father to prove he isn’t the dad. I’m going to go to CAB about it but wondered if anyone had dealt with a similar situation?
