My ex wife has custody of our son, on our divorce decree it

This answer was rated:

My ex wife has custody of our son, on our divorce decree it states that I have unlimited visitation rights. I have been trying to contact her and she is ignoring me, and states that I cannot see him. I know that legally she is in the wrong, I have tried contacting DHS and local family court,they have no answers for me. How do I legally get her to let me see and talk to my son?

SoloLawyer :

When you say "unlimited", what do you mean? Does it say that the two of you have to agree on liberal visitation?

Customer:

I can see him whenever, there is no limitations

Customer:

she is upset with me and not letting me see or talk to him, she states that I am too unstable, but that is not for her to decide correct?

Customer:

i used to have him 3 days a week, basically see him or have whenever i wanted

Customer:

I call everyday, I send texts asking to see him and she does not reply

SoloLawyer :

Okay, thank you.

Customer:

SoloLawyer :

Your remedy would be to file a motion of Contempt with the Court. You need to start notating when she is ignoring you, how many times, what her excuses are, etc. Then speak to a local family law attorney and file contempt charges, alleging very specifically what she has been doing. The court can force her to let you see the child or face fines/jail time.

Customer:

so find a family law attorney and have them file contempt of court charges

SoloLawyer :

Yes.

Customer:

thats what i thought but i didnt know if i needed a lawyer to do that or i could file it myse
