My ex and I split up while she was pregnant with our son. He’s now 5 and we were never married. We’ve had a decent relationship, and followed a visitation schedule until recently. Now she’s marrying someone else and is not letting me see him at all. What can I do?
Time is of the essence here, because your son misses you and this denial is bad for him. Moreover, the longer you go without seeing him, the less courts are likely to defer to your previous visitation plan. So you need to hire a lawyer immediately. Document that your ex previously allowed you to see him, because courts tend to defer to the status quo. You should be able to get visitation back without a problem, but you should not try to litigate this on your own.
