DEAR DEIDRE: I’M not sure when I’ll see my little boy again as my former partner has taken him away.
I’m a woman of 36. I was in a gay relationship and we both wanted a family.
My partner, who is 32, had a pal from university who provided sperm so we could conceive.
It happened on our second attempt and our boy was born two years ago.
My partner became distant after his birth.
I thought she had postnatal depression but it turns out she had been plotting to leave me to move in with a man from her work.
She left one day while I was out and took our son. It has been heartbreaking.
I have been trying to get to see him, with no success.

DEIDRE SAYS: If your name is on his birth certificate as a parent, then you have parental rights.
If your name is not on the birth certificate, then you have to convince her how important it is for your son, and not just you, to maintain a relationship.
You can find support from Families Need Fathers, who help mothers too (fnf.org.uk, 0300 0300 363).
