Here is the situation:
My girlfriend is currently eight months pregnant with another man's child. I have known her forever, we got together at about the five month mark. The guy and her were together, he got her pregnant, and he took off after saying some nasty things. Fast forward to the past few weeks, and now he's trying to contact my girlfriend, asking how she and the baby are, etc. She found out that he has a crib and is saying how he's going to be a great father and all that jazz. Before, she found out he was heavy in to drugs and things like that. I don't know if he still is or not. Understandably, I haven't exactly kept up with him. She does not want him anywhere near the child. I was going to step in and be the father for the child.
He apparently lives with a guy roommate as well. Is there any recourse to deny him rights to have the child? Or is it more of a situation that she's stuck because he's the biological father? If I were to legally adopt the child, would that solve this problem? I haven't done the proper leg work yet, but I'm assuming the biological father would have to sign off on that.
To sum up: father got her pregnant, disappeared, now reappeared, but mother wants nothing to do with him.
