Question about father's Rights
My brother is expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend. Long story on why she is the "ex," but to summarize...they had dated for two years and it seemed as if she was madly in love with him. At 10 weeks pregnant, she started having nightmares that he was cheating and now she has taken those feelings and run with them. I 99.9% assure you, there has been no cheating. She is now due in about 2 months and as requested, we have given her space to "heal." Heal from what? her nightmares??? My brother has asked her several times to please come home as he is just devastated. She says she wants to have a co-parenting relationship with him but her actions and words indicate otherwise.
After asking that we all sit as a family to discuss a parenting plan, she refused saying she was not ready. My brother sort of accepted this, but was trying to communicate with her, very peacefully. He asked her about vaccinations and circumcision--which they had originally planned to do bare minimum and not circumcise. He offered some information/videos about these topics and she answered him in a hostile manner stating "he will be fully vaccinated and circumcised. I don't need any videos to tell me about these things!"
Last night she wrote our family an email stating that none of us OR MY BROTHER will be able to see the baby until after she is home and has recuperated (3-4 weeks). She said she'll send pictures....like shes on vacation or something! She said after the 3-4 weeks it will be for an hour at a time, if she and the baby are awake and feeling well.
SERIOUSLY? Can she do this?
My brother is a very good person, very responsible, owns his own house, has a very stable well paying career. He has no criminal record and the mother of his grown daughter can attest to his character and their co-parenting relationship. My bro is over 50, not that it matters!
He has a consultation for a lawyer set up--but does anyone have any words for me??
