Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
The law says that a child is entitled to contact with both parents and the courts will enforce this of necessary
The fact that your son has a new partner is NOT a reason for disrupting contact unless there is something about his girlfriend that places the child at risk.
Your son should try and discuss matters with his ex using Family mediation to agree a pattern of shared care which can be turned into an enforceable court order
If the mediation breaks down then your son can apply to the court - he will get an order reinstating the current contact - and possibly achieving more - alternate weekends one night in the week and half of the school holidays is not unusual
Please ask if you need further details
