If there is currently no custody order in the Court, you will need to file a Complaint to establish custody, placement, and visitation. If there already is an order, you will need to file either a Motion for Contempt if he is failing to allow you the Court Ordered visitation, or, you will need to file a Motion to Modify the current order if it does not guarantee you specific visitation. Specific rules and procedures for your jurisdiction must be followed and therefore I would recommend hiring a local Family Law Attorney to assist you in navigating through the Court system.

    Go to Court. Ask for Visitation modification. In Some circumstances you may even be able to get a change in custody. (without more specifics, it is impossible to give you a more detailed response.)

    If your ex is your ex wife, then part of the divorce would be a parenting plan. If she was a girlfriend, file either a parentage action (if you're not on the birth certificate) or a petition to establish a parenting plan. In either case you can get a parenting plan which will allocated time with the child to each parent.
