My friend has a child with someone she is no longer dating. They were never married, however paternity has been established through the child support system. The child's father occasionally pays child support but not all the time, and rarely visits the child.
If my friend was to take her 3-yr old to the child's fathers house and leave the child with him and leave for two months and come back, is it child abandonment?
She's writing a letter with all her daughter's allergies and doctors numbers and everything on it, and her house phone number so the dad can contact her, but he's not going to be aware that's she laving the baby with him until he sees her drive away...
