You are doing the right thing by actively telling your ex that he should be a part of your son's life. You are not denying him of his parental rights at all. If he does not want to completely walk away from your son, then ask him how does he expect to have a relationship with him when he does not want to come around? Another alternative is that you can take this issue to court...which may be a bit costly...and the court can resolve the issue including mandated visitation schedules if necessary. A mediator might be able to solve the issue before the step of going to court.
If this has helped, please ACCEPT. Have a great day!!!
Hello, thank you for the reply,you have helped and this has been very useful,and i will accept....but do you know how i could go about getting a mediator? I was thinking about getting a solicter to write him a letter offering him one day a week that he has to stick to or i would take it to court..... but i dont want him to get upset and for things to get silly.... after all i want him to be involved for our sons sake...?
