My daughters soon to be ex husband is not letting my daughter see her son. What does she need to do in order for her to see her son.
Her first step should be consulting with an attorney. Generally speaking, however, if there are no court orders in place, each parent has equal rights to parent the child. Even calling the police will be useless and they only have the ability to enforce court orders or arrest for criminal offenses.
Many times situations like this become unmanageable quickly. I highly suggest speaking with an attorney to develop a plan in order to prevent this scenario from repeating itself.
I am so sorry to hear that your daughter's access to her son has been restricted. A person in your daughter's position may want to consider petitioning the court for emergency custody of the minor child. Reviewing your question you did not indicate that there was a current custody order and when there is not an established custody order then either parent has equal rights to the minor child. This means that it will be challenging to ask law enforcement to intervene because there is no court order that dictates custodial times for either parent.
It may be helpful for a person in your daughter's position to consult a family law attorney to determine appropriate next steps to restore her custodial time with her son.
I hope this response proves helpful.
