Leo’s path to a birth certificate and father
Baby Leo’s mother approached PathFinders whilst pregnant and still employed as a Migrant Domestic Worker (MDW).
PathFinders helped Daisy, baby Leo’s mother, liaise with her employer, who was unsupportive at first.
When Leo was born Daisy was unable to contact his father, a Hong Kong permanent resident. He had ended their relationship and cut off all contact when learning Daisy was pregnant.
After helping to secure a birth certificate for Leo, PathFinders assisted him to establish Hong Kong resident status and supported Daisy to issue a paternity suit and maintenance claim against the father. Following a successful result, the father gradually started to take an active role in parenting, visiting and caring for Leo.
