That is a difficult situation and I have some suggestions. The first is 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, trained 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

If this does not work, then you can apply to the Family Court for permission to apply for contact. You could apply for legal aid to get a lawyer
