The amended children's act states that both parents have equal rights and responsibilities.
Parental alienation is a very real and unfortunate problem and should on no account have anything to do with paying maintenance and withholding payment of maintenance is illegal.
This is a very long time for not seeing your child and this should be addressed with the Children's court. You have the right to see your child and your child has the right to have a relationship with both parents.
Unless there are valid concerning reasons for the child to be with you, the mother cannot withhold access.
