YOU BE THE JUDGE: Should This Woman Ban Ex From Delivery Room
You and your husband are expecting a baby and then suddenly you get divorced. You hate his stinking guts, and you don't want him to be in the delivery room when you give birth – but he does.
What do you do?
Steven Plotnick sued his ex-girlfriend last year to make her tell him when she went into labor. In New Jersey, a woman has the right to ban-estranged ex-fiances from being in the delivery room.
Any interest a father has before the child’s birth is subordinate to the mother’s interests. Even when there is no doubt that a father has shown deep and proper concern and interest in the growth and development of the fetus,' the judge wrote.
Also the woman did give her ex-husband normal hospital rights visitation.
