Thank you for your question

What has happened since you stopped the ongoing contact?
Why have you not claimed Child Maintenance?
You can respond at any time - I too will be on and offline this evening!
How long did he actually have him for when he had him - and do you know and trust his grandmother?
In the last three months how often has he cancelled contact?
Stopping Contact is rarely seen as reasonable by the court so you need to re-instate it as soon as possible.
At this stage you should write to his solicitor saying that you would welcome the chance to go to mediation and to establish a regular
pattern of contact that your ex will actually keep to.
I do understand how frustrating you find his approach - but Contact and maintenance are not linked; and once he has established a reliable
pattern then I am afraid that overnight contact will be the next step assuming he has somewhere suitable for the child to stay
That is however some way into the future.
