If she is denying him contact and he has been unable to agree contact with her, his first course of action is to try mediation. He will need to attend at least a MIAM - mediation information assessment meeting before being able to apply to court for a child arrangements order to spend time with the children. If mediation is unsuccessful, the mediator will sign his application to court (a legal requirement) and he will then be able to apply to the courts.
