My husband is having issues with his child’s mother on seeing his child. He hasn't seen his daughter since she was three years old. He’s reached out to his child’s mother via text messages, email, social media and hasn't gotten a response. He has proof of all the messages, it’s gotten to the point where he even reached out to family members of hers and no response. My husband mother told him to basically wait it out and his child mother would come around. Enough is enough my husband is fed up with not seeing his daughter. What options do he has?
If he really wants to see his daughter it is time for him to contact an attorney. You say nothing about whether or not he is legally recognized as being the child's father nor do you say that he is paying child support. All of these things need to be resolved as part of a court case.
1) Has your husband previously been determined to be the father of his daughter either by a) signing a voluntary acknowledgment of paternity with the mother or b) determined to be the father in an administrative hearing or a court case? If he’s not yet been determined to be the father he must first be determined to be the father to proceed with seeking time to see his daughter. Then he can ask the court to set his parenting time to see his daughter. If he’s already determined to be the father but hasn’t had a court set a parenting plan and parenting time he would need to request the court enter a parenting plan and set it (preferred path) if he has been determined and the mother is refusing and hiding the child a more extreme option is to pursue an order of protection for harassing you through the bs games played to keep you separated from the child because it is considered to be harassment. I would highly recommend he see an attorney to provide his particular information details to choose the appropriate path course to pursue & obtain a parenting plan for his daughter.
