Unless your ex believes you pose a risk to your son, or you might not return him, she has no valid reason to obstruct access. During Covid she could argue against access if you have a high risk job, or if she or your son have an underlying condition – asthma etc.  Or perhaps if it involves a large amount of travel.

Remember her solicitor is working for her, not you, so they might tell her to refuse access until the court case because there is little you can do about it. It doesn’t make it right but the solicitor gets paid for getting her what she wants.

Practically, all you can do is stay calm, and polite, keep all messages, record all harassment, keep asking for FaceTime or similar, and go to court ASAP. Can you get the court date brought forward? What does your solicitor say?
