HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.But I need some clarification.Please tell me1 - There is a court order to the Father for custody and you are to have visitation?2 - And you have filed Contempt of court on him not following the Court order allowing you visitations?3 - And the court just does not care that he is not following the Order?4 - When is the last time you saw your son, please?
HelloThank you. I see. Well, if the transportation is the issue, the court is correct. I suggest you can file a Modification and see if you can have your son for longer visits - But I doubt they will change the transportation portion because they will not put that all on the Father. It is a give and take and shared responsibility.The Police will never get involved because it is not a criminal action. It is civil and must be handled in the courts.I suggest a Modification where the visits are changed say from whatever it is now to either full custody to you or a situation where you have him on his holidays so that the transportation is not so strenuous on you and him - as to the time spent in the car.
You may also want to consider Mediation to help with establishing a more convenient visitation schedule.
I wish there was more information to provide you in this regard. But if the issue is transportation, and that is your responsibility to meet half way, those are your options.
