My boyfriend left me as soon as he found out I was pregnant and refuses to acknowledge that there is a baby. He hasn’t been to any scans or had any involvement and says he won’t be named on the birth certificate. I do not think he should just get away with paying nothing. Will I still be able to claim child maintenance from him if he is not on the birth certificate? I’ve read somewhere that if his name is not on there he has no legal obligations. Surely this can’t be fair if he is just refusing.
