Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. I'm sorry to hear about that situation. Technically, your son does not have to talk to you at all. The legal obligation rest with the parents to care for the child, but it doesn't really get involved into the relationship of the parent and the child down to that kind of level. However, if the other parent is keeping you from seeing the child, then that is likely going to be a violation of your rights to see the child. You may want to consider filing a contempt motion against the other parent if they are interfering with your right to see the child. Initially, I always recommend working it out informally, but in family law cases that doesn't always work. You may need Court intervention to help you out, but understand that although your son is not legally obligated to talk to you, you still have the right to see the child and be able to do what you can to repair the relationship.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I thought that I had submitted the post but for whatever reason it seems as if it disappeared. Basically, what you would need to do is just draft of the facts on 28th line pleading paper and submitted to the court. You can ask the court for a ruling to hold the other parent in contempt for not letting the child see you. Now, the court may very likely take the child to pinyin into consideration, but the child themselves does just not have the right to refuse to see a parent. The other parent would have to request for a modification of parenting time for that to be legal.
