My ex won't let me see our kids – I feel like I've been replaced

DEAR DEIDRE: MY ex won’t let me see our kids. I feel like I’ve been replaced.

My wife and I split at the start of the year after 12 years together. We’re both 38, and we have two kids together.

It all ended amicably and we agreed that I’d get to see our daughters, who are nine and seven, every weekend.

But since meeting her new partner in August, everything has changed.

He is controlling and doesn’t like me being around so I haven’t seen the girls for three weeks.

He has no reason to feel like this – I pay child support and take great care of them.

I miss my girls so much. I’ve got nothing else in this world except them.

I can’t sleep because I’m so worried about how to fix this.

DEIDRE SAYS: Your ex and her partner need to put your daughters first. Their parents have split and they will be adjusting to their mum’s new partner.

This is a lot for them to deal with. A good relationship and regular contact with both parents will help them adjust.

Families Need Fathers (fnf.org.uk) will be able to advise you.

If you are struggling to cope with this, talk to your GP. They will be able to organise some counselling for you.
