The father of my child wants absolutely nothing to do with me or the baby but he's named on the birth certificate and my baby has his last name not mine, he has stated multiple times that he would just sign his rights as a parent away but obviously it's not that easy. What are the steps after separating from him? Does he have to pay child support in order for me to receive single parent payments from Centrelink? (Id prefer to receive no child support from him and eventually let him give up his rights if it was possible..) Can I change her last name? How do people do things like get their child a passport when he refuses to be a part of our lives? Has anyone had one parent sign away their parental rights? How does it work? He's a drug user and verbally abusive so I don't want him to have any sort of custody of my baby and I don't want to take him to court if I don't have too because he is chosing to stay out of our lives without any court orders telling him too which feels easier to me. I have encouraged him to visit and call and be involved but he refuses and he is still very abusive and using hard drugs so I never want him to have unsupervised custody of my baby especially after the things he's said. Now that encouraging a relationship hasn't worked I'd like to know how people cope when the father wants nothing to do with you but he's on the birth certificate? I can't even get her a passport because of him and I want to change her last name 😪
