Thank you for trusting Just Answer. I will answer as clearly as possible.
You can file to request that the court enter a temporary emergency custody order. It will also likely take a week or two for this to occur.
If you can come to some agreement with her then you can sign a temporary custody agreement where both of you will agree to your custody roles. However, this type of agreement will not force her to take custody if she is refusing custody on a particular day or two. If you think that putting custody in writing will encourage her to stick to her agreement on a regular basis then signing an agreement may help. Here is a great parenting plan
In fact there is not a court or agreement that can force her to consistently take custody. If she will not consistently follow a visitation schedule then a court may stop any visitation that she is allowed. However, the court cannot do anything other than take away custody to get her to follow the schedule.
