Hello and thank you for choosing JustAnswer! I am sorry that has happened to those poor children and if they are ever hit or abused it is important that you report such abuse to the New Jersey Department of Children and Families
. You can learn about reporting abuse at the following link:
The answer to your other question is no, you cannot file criminal charges for interference of visitation. When one of the parent's violates the custody/visitation order the proper response is to file a motion to enforce the custody/visitation order (you may also ask the Court to modify the arrangement so that the children are with you more; a modification requires a change in circumstances since the last custody/visitation order was entered). In the motion you will also request that the Court hold the other parent in contempt of the original order (this "contempt" power can be used by the Judge to order a fine, order the other parent to pay your attorneys fees for having to bring this motion, place the other parent in jail for a period of time, etc.). In this way you can enforce the original court order and bring consequences to the other parent for violating the order.
I hope this has helped and I wish you all the best. Please let me know if you need me to further clarify my answer and I will do my best to so clarify.
While of course not required, positive feedback and/or a bonus are greatly appreciated if I have been helpful. To request my assistance again in the future, please go to the following link and enter your question on my profile page:
