Since there was some kind of separation or divorce here, you can apply to the court for grandparent visitation. You may want to have an attorney do this for you because grandparent visitation isn't always granted, but it is granted in the right cases. You have to prove to the court that it is in the best interest of the child for the child to see you and to be with you, that it is in her best interest for her to be with you and spend time with you and she must miss you already, which is not fair to the child.
Let me know if you need any additional information, but yes, this is a court proceeding. Unless you can get the mother to agree, you would have to take her to court to get grandparent visitation rights.
Let me know if you need names of lawyers in your area.
