Good afternoon from Savannah,
I'm sorry to hear of your dilemma.
Depending on how flexible and non-specific your custody/visitation Order is, you may not have any good footing for contempt.
You claim that you were denied your summer visitation and she refused to work toward a visitation plan. It sounds as though there is no actual order of custody/visitation except that she has primary custody and the two of you shall work out visitation.
The fact that visitation has not been worked out is not contempt on her part, and if there is no Ordered summer visitation---again she can not be in contempt of an Order which does not exist. A court will not issue contempt citations for something that is not a definite obligation on the part of a litigant.
Whet you do have is the perfect scenario, and good cause, to ask for a modification of the child custody Order to make visitation specific. Generally, visitation is set every other weekend, alternating holidays and 4 to 6 weeks during the summer break---for a total of 90 to 100 days visitation each year.
While you may ask for a modified custody order at court today, the court will likely ask you to file a formal Noticed Motion for Modification so as to give your ex an opportunity to retain counsel and defend against the Motion. Don't forget to ask that the court at least Order a specific Christmas visitation schedule for later this month---that will likely be agreed to by the court.
I wish you and your child the best this holiday season.
