Good afternoon,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. What state was the divorce in?
2. What do you meant when you say that he is not involving you in decisions?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

We are in the state of GA.

He sends then to camp Orr to friends' home when it's time for visitation without discussing with me .

Good afternoon,

Thanks for the additional information.

By making plans for the children while they are supposed to be in your custody for visitation, and by not turning them over to you as required under the child custody/visitation order, he is violating the order.

You will want to file a Motion for Contempt and inform the court that he is violating the court order. The court will order that he abide by the order and if he does not, the court can fine him or even jail him for contempt.

The court may also modify the custody order so that he may not make any plans for the children during any times that you will be entitled to have them with you---without your prior permission. That should help protect your time with the children as well.
