If your ex-partner says she’s not going to let you have any contact with your children, it can be one of the most distressing things that can happen to you. There may be a number of reasons behind her decision but somehow they’re irrelevant; you simply want to be able to spend time with your kids. So what can you do to change the situation?
Why It Happens
There are several reasons why your ex might deny you access to your children.
- It could be a bargaining chip for Divorce or legal proceedings yet to come
- It might be revenge for the break-up of the relationship
- In some instances, it’s even been used as a way to conceal a new relationship
Denial of contact, as it’s called legally, doesn’t necessarily happen immediately after your relationship ends. It can occur at any time until the child is of age.
