The recommendations from the Magistrate remain in full force until the hearing; at that point the judge will be able to modify them; he is possibly allowing for this visitation to see how the other parent does with the child, to see if that parent should be given more visitation;
if the judge orders that you are to have custody, and the other parent retains the child after the exception hearing then that person is in contempt of court; and the judge can order that person to bring the child to court or to your residence so that custody can be reinstated.
Contempt is the willful and knowing violation of a court order-done with intent; the penalties may include fines (daily), attorney fee awards, even jail time - all done to encourage compliance.
