My name is Mac. I will be able to help you with your question. First I need a bit more information:

- how old are you, and how old is the mother?
- have you ever had contact with your daughter?
- if so, can you describe what type / how frequent etc?
- are you named on the birth certificate?
- can you give me a summary of your relationship with the mother?
- if she was asked, what do you think she would say about why you shouldn't be able to see your daughter?
- do you have any other children?
