Q: my girlfriend split up after having a baby,where do i get a blood test for confirmation?
She wont let me see the baby. Not even for a hug. Im a very loving, family orientated newtime father who would love to see my baby girl. Ive started looking into legal aid for sonoma county and found (a lot )of help. So many wonderful people. I just wish and hope for a outlet when it comes to seeing my baby. The moments are precious to be missed for me .Its strange to me that the mother of the baby wont let me apart of the babys life. She set up a temporary restraining order and keeps calling the police. Making things up . anything to keep me from seeing my daughter. Her family are drug addict people and ive had to take drugs away from them. Please help
A: If there is a restraining order in place, then make sure you do nothing to violate those terms. Violating the restraining order will not support your efforts to be more present in the child's life.
If you believe you are the father of the child, you can file a petition in family court for a declaration of paternity and obtain verification that the child is yours. Then you can request visitation and other rights to see, and support, the child.
Many courts have family law self help clinics to assist in the preparation of the relevant forms.
