Newborn is expected in August and all contact with Mother at this point has broken down. Threats of not being included on birth registration and attempts for mediation have failed, she declined to participate however I now have my MIAM certificate (valid for 4 months). Any advice at this point would be appreciated. The intention is to co-parent and have shared responsibility, however fears I will not be included in any of these and will have to go through all of the necessary processes to achieve parental rights. Is the next step to reach to reach out to a solicitor / family lawyer? Any help or advice would be appreciated. Desperate and feeling helpless.
