What can I do if my ex-girlfriend is pregnant with my child and wants to leave the city?
Question Details: Is there anything I can do to keep her from leaving; I want to be a part of my child's life.
Yes, you can stop her from leaving. You should consult with an attorney immediately who can assist you in filing a Paternity action in order to establish your legal rights as the biological father. Once the action is filed and she is served, you can file for an injunction to prevent removal of the child from the State. Talk to an attorney immediately.
