Well, if you dont let him sign the birth certificate, he has no rights. When a man signs, hes giving his word that he believes he is the father of your baby..No signature, no rights. If he wants rights he has to take you to court.

I'm not giving my BD rights and I'm not letting him sign the BC. If he's not at the hospital and doesn't sign the BC then he has to take you to court, order (and be GRANTED) a paternity test, and that's a lot of money on his end. I say just don't have him at the hospital and leave the father part of the BC blank. Good Luck!

This. I never put dd1 biological dad on the birth certificate so he doesn't have any rights at all. Before she was born I asked him to sign away his paternity rights and he refused in case he changed his mind in a few years and decided he did want something to do with his daughter. By leaving him off the birth certificate he didn't get any rights at all. Now if he wants to spend time with his daughter he has to prove his paternity and take me to court. This was 8 years ago and he hasn't bothered with any of it. Some men are just plain sperm donors who really don't matter in the long run. (Cold, I know but he made his choice a long time ago, and refused to have anything to do with her after she was born.) Now dd1 has a wonderful, caring stepfather who would move the heavens and the earth for her. He is the only Dad she has ever known. Stay strong Mamma! Protect your baby and yourself and leave him off the birth certificate!

he can still be at the hospital, just dont mention the bc. Besides.. its the mothers choice no matter what. Im sure if he hasnt been there so far, hes probably not going to stay at the hospital very long after the baby is born..What ever you do, do not let him trick you into thinking hes going to be there for you and the baby once its here.
