Question: I am looking for advice for a particular problem I am facing with my son, who is 2½ years old. I am a single father and split up with his mother about one year ago.
His mother has only agreed to me seeing my son two days a week, for five hours each day – noon to 5pm. I have applied to court to try and get a judge to grant me more meaningful time with my son but the coronavirus has pushed the court dates back and it looks like it will be a year and a half before I get a hearing.
