The first step would be to try family mediation

When parents cannot agree about a parenting agreement for their children, it is always a good idea to start with a family mediation. There are a number of different providers of mediation, who will arrange the mediation and appoint an independent, train and neutral mediator. The mediators must go through special training and be approved for family mediations. They set up meetings with the parties separately and together to facilitate the parenting agreement. If you are financially eligible the cost is subsidised

And her partner also doesnt want them to meet up as he doesnt like my partner .. my partner did on a few visit in his daughters entire life , then she moves out with out telling him , removes him from child support and also just dennys visit just him and his daughter he has to be qith the daughter infront her whole family from mum to dad all sibling and also grandparents . I feel like he can do more just not sure , he really needs the right support and advice , thank you so much

The back up if mediation does not work is that he can apply to the Family Court and if the mediation doesnt work, the court is very likely to allow contact

Customer
Will that also be even if he wasnt there for 2 years ? I mean my partner has litrally changed from what knew him as, they litrally werent even in a relationship to begin with and when she found out she was pregnant he tried to get in a relationship with her but she didnt want to. Sorry to unfold , its just so sad seeing him like this , he works 5 to 6 days a week and she pops up randomly all the time and when she doesnt hear what she wants to hear she ghosts him .
Customer
He is such a good man he litrally doesnt try to argue back with her so she doesnt ghosts him. And he really wants to be apart of his daughters life

The contact may need to start in slow steps perhaps with supervision, but he will be able to see his child. He just needs to go through the system

Customer
Can he have a say in who will be supervising them , as hes only comfortanle with just his daughter and the mum , and mot her whole family
Customer
Cause last time supervision contact was made , elizabeths mum and dad always butted in with how he held her or how he feed her or even just being around his daughter hes always uncomfortable because they make him feel that ways

He could use a professional supervisor to start with to avoid her family
Customer
Oh thats great news , i will surely let him know and also one more question , is it true that he can go with a police officers to uplift her ? If his childs mother wont allow him at all or refuses to go court ? I know for sure that theres no protection order toward him as hes never been requested to go court nor has he ever given her a reson to call the police on him

Chris The Lawyer, Expert

If there is a court order, and the mother disobeys the order, he can get a warrant to enforce contact and the police may help enforce it. That’s really the nuclear option of course
Customer
Yeah i jnderstand that is actually the last thing he ever wants to do , but if she disagrees with letting him see his daughter and wont allow him to ever see her hes got no choice then cause hes never been given a chance and last time he was she choose to make it hard for him by only msging when shes available instead of considering that hes working aswell
Customer
I mean he doesnt even know where they have moved to she didnt even tell him they moved and wont even let him know where they stay . I mean he is wrong for he had done which was stoped visiting due to her family making him feel unwanted
