Customer Question

My ex girl friend and I had a child but we broke up prior to the birth. We were friends throughout the birth and first year of the child's life where I would spend two days a week with the child but the mother has stopped communicating with me and won't respond to any communication. How do I go about getting access to spending time with my child again?

Good Evening

My name is Leon and I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question.

It is a matter where you have to go to mediation before you can go to court.

If you reach an agreement at mediation then you should register it as orders.

You should contact your closest family relationship centre. This is a free service provided by the Federal Government. Their website is

http://www.familyrelationships.gov.au

You can find your closest one on there.

The web-site also have alot of useful information and links to assist you.

Before going to court you must obtain a certificate from a family dispute resolution practitioner. You get this through the free service provided at the family relationship centres.

If you need to go to court then you will need to file an application in the Family Court or the Federal Magistrates Court

http://www.familycourt.gov.au and http://www.fmc.gov.au


Is there anything else I can assist you with?
