After Separation

my partner had to go to court to see his son due to a bitter split. in court it was agreed that my partner would see his son once a week for tea and on a Saturday and once my step son was ready to sleep over (due to there being along time without of contact) the court agreement said that the parents were to arrange over night stay and holidays . we have been seeing my step son for over a year now and even though my step son is asking us and his mum to stop over she is still saying no she keeps arranging weekends away for him but won't allow us to take him away . what can we do?

    Thanks for your post.
    It's good to hear that your partner has been able to set up a routine of regular visits with his son.
    I'm curious about why his Mum seems to be hanging back over moving things forward. Any thoughts about that?
    Any clues about how she feels about your involvement? Sometimes this can be tricky for parents in her position. Might she need some reassurance about her feelings about letting him come to you?
    Was there a mediator involved when your partner and his ex were going through the court process? He might want to think about approaching them again to get some help with getting through this next step.
