Hi
Then the next step will be you receiving a first hearing date.
Just before that date you will hear from CAFCASS who will ask you about your concerns and what contact you are looking for
There is a chance that some agreement can be reached on contact on the first hearing day - but if not then the Judge will make directions as to how the matter should move forward.

Unfortunately there is no other action that you can take
Please ask if you need further details
