If the other parent of your child is not allowing you to see your child, this can be a highly upsetting situation.
One parent, whether it is the mother or father, should not stop the other parent from seeing their child, unless doing so puts the child at risk of being exposed to an unacceptable risk of harm.
If your former partner is not allowing you to see your child, the first thing you should do is try to discuss the situation. This isn’t always possible, especially if you have a contentious relationship.
The next thing you should do is talk to us. You can tell us about your situation, and we can advise you of your legal rights and some of the options you have available.
Your child has the right to have a relationship with you – as long as there is no risk of harm.
