Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Is there a formal child custody in place from the courts setting up specific times for your custody?
Ok, if she is intentionally refusing to allow you custodial time with the children, and there are available supervisors, then your recourse here is to file a motion for contempt of court to force her to appear in front of the judge and explain her actions. The judge can sanction her with reprimands, fines, amended custodial time, and even jail time for repeated violations.
But if there is no one available for supervised visits, then legally she wouldn't have to allow it. So it all boils down to whether there is a supervisor available as to whether she is in contempt or not..
