I agree with my colleague. It’s not likely that the court would grant visitorship. You may want to try and reach out to the child’s mother and see if you can come to an agreement to be able to see the child.

Your post is kind of confusing. It sounds like you are caring for the child, but asking if you can see the child. You may want to consult with an attorney who can review the case in detail and present you with guidance.
