If you weren't abusive, an alcoholic or into drugs and your wife just left you, then she has no right to keep your child away from you. However, if you choose to see your child then it's your responsibility to make child support payments whether you and your wife get back together or not. If you want to see your child then it's best to contact a lawyer and go through the court system and if you win the custody battle, then be responsible and pay child support. Marcy
