He will need to see a lawyer, and then go to mediation to have access to the kid, if mediation fails then court. Is he named on the birth certificate?
If the matter cannot be resolved via mediation, then your son needs to apply for a court order to have access to the child. The child’s best interest will always be at the heart of any decision the court makes. I have attached guidance for you to take a look through.
Your son will need to complete C100 court form (which I have attached) and send the original and 3 copies of it to the nearest court. It costs £215 to apply for a court order. He may be able to get help with court fees if he is on benefits or a low income.
The following site will also prove useful for you and your son to take a look at https://www.fathers-4-justice.org/
But all in all, please see a family solicitor to assist with the court order. He has parental responsibility as he is named on the birth certificate so he will have certain rights and entitlements.
