My bf and I started living together (in his mother's house) for more than 3 years now and we have a 4-year-old daughter who uses his surname. He then had an affair with another woman, who claims that they have been together for almost a year and got her pregnant, the child has already been born and is now turning 3 months old. Although my bf does not admit that the child is his, the other woman demands for his financial support for her child. My question is this,
1. do the other woman and I have equal rights when it comes to my bf/live-in partner?
2. We are still together. However the other woman keeps asking my bf for help when it comes to her maternity benefits and stuff like that, in short she expects and demands him to do what a normal "husband" will do for his wife. Is that even allowed by law? Can she do that?
3. My bf said that the other woman knew about us (me and our child) even before they have been together, though the other woman denies it. If this is true, what legal actions can I take against her? I don't like the fact that she keeps bothering my bf, wanting him to be there for them. Despite the fact that my bf is not acknowledging her child and that he have already chosen us.
Atty. please advise. I need your help.
