Thank you for your question

There is no action that your son can take until the baby is born

Once the child is born the court says that a child is entitled to a relationship with both parents and the courts will enforce this if necessary

As a starting point your son could try and discuss matters now using Family mediation

www.familymediationcouncil.org.uk

If that fails he can then make the applictaion for a Child Arrangement Order as soon as the baby is born.

It is important that he is realistic in his expectations

In the early months contact should be short - but often, maybe an hour twice a week and then build up week by week.

He may find this website useful
