My question involves paternity law for the State of: Massachusetts
Hello Folks, I have some questions and at 46 am a little embarrassed to ask such things.
I was involved with a gal from Canada, down on work via (That cannot be extended and the green card process has not been started at this time), that US work status expires Sept of this year, 2011.
We were intimate and now she is 5 month pregnant (Due in May 2011). Once she became pregnant the relationship deteriorated to the point that she is saying itís all her, she may move home to Canada, expecting child support as a wage garnish.
Paternity has not been proven although I expect itís my child.
As a point, once I found this out about the pregnancy, Attempted over the months to do the proper things (Not that it matters in court), I said I would buy a home, she can have the child and after some time if we are good to each other, marriage. The relationship broke down when she said, ďI donít expect to work for say 5 years, you will buy our home, you will take care of her and the baby in addition to an $800 a month horse stable fee.
The above absurdities, what are my right and hers if (Assuming the child is mine under a DNA test):
1) She stays in the US, has the child
2) She stays in the US has the child and then moves home to Canada with the child
3) She heads to Canada, has the child as a Canadian citizen
Thank you for any guidance,
