I am sorry to hear about you child's condition. A non-custodian parent normally has reasonable access to the child, this means that he/she may have access to the child at reasonable times and places. It is always better to reach agreement on what is deemed as reasonable in each particular circumstance. If the parties are unable to reach agreement, the parents may approach court for an order structuring access.
A parent who is the custodian are not allowed to impose unreasonable restrictions or conditions regarding access, but such a parent does have the final say when the two parents are not able to agree on something. Unless contrary to the child’s best interests, a custodian are for example not allowed to refuse that access takes place in the non-custodian parent’s house or to insist on being present. It is also not allowed to refuse contact with a new spouse or companion, unless it will be against the child’s best interest. I emphasize the "best interest" principle.
