I agree with Lala about throwing around the term "alienation". In this instance, what is your visitation/custody arrangement? Do you see the child at all, or is this about when they are with dad? How old is the child? How often and for how long are they with dad?

First, you check your custody/visitation order. If you have phone access, he is only obligated to uphold the court-ordered portion :(
Now, if your court order grants you none, I'd go back to modify and add specific phone access.
If your arrangement does grant you phone access, make records of every phone call you make that gets blocked. Pair this with other behaviors that "alienate" you (blocked visitation, third party interference, monitoring any calls that u do get, etc).

I would be very careful to throw around the word "alienate" to a judge as it can backfire on you if the situation that does not call for the label.

Hope that helps!

check for legal aid in your area. Some attorneys will work for lower or sliding fees.

As with anything, you will have to be willing to at least put down a small amount.

What is in your custody/visitation orders?

If your orders do not indicate that one party can with hold contact, then he's in contempt. If they do indicate that contact can be withheld, then I'd recommend you get an attorney and seek an amendment of orders.
