Hi
The law says that s child is entitled to regular personal contact with both parents and the courts will enforce this if necessary.
There is no reason why such contact should not be on a set pattern - and every reason why it should be.
This is the case no matter what the position with regard to the divorce and any financial issues.
Your son should try and discuss matters with his ex using Family Mediation - but if that fails he can apply to the court for an enforceable defined contact order
