Hello and thank you for your question.
The court has a wide discretion as to how to handle a case like this, and some delay is certainly possible, but if you can satisfy the court she is currently breaching the existing orders, and she simply fails to attend, you could ask the court to determine the matter in her absence, or at least impose interim orders allowing you the greater access you have been seeking until the matter is finally determined, and the court may be willng to do this. Even if the court won't make such orders on the next occasion, if she continues to fail to attend, the court will eventually deal with the matter in her absence.
I trust the above assists.
