Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hi, I'm trained and experienced in family law, and I would love to help you through your current situation. That is only required if required in the court order. Does the court order require this?
If not, her refusing to allow him his court ordered visits would be contempt of court order.
Remember, this is legal information and not legal advice.
Does that make sense?
Got it. In that case, she has no right to refuse visitation on the basis that he doesn't provide information which he is under no legal obligation to provide.
She cannot take the child from the father. If she does, that is contempt (and proof itself). You can document dates when she doesn't show up with the child (and retain emails, texts, or other paper trail to later prove that)
... the order is that she delivers the child to the father (to clarify, document when she misses visitations, when she is supposed to bring the child to the father).
Unless a court order requires it, that cannot be a condition to her fulfilling her obligation per court order (i.e. allowing him his court ordered visitation).
