Thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear about your situation, it sounds VERY frustrating. To the extent that her actions are in violation of the court order then she is in contempt of court. You have the ability to file a contempt motion which would highlight to the court that she is not in compliance with the court order and allows the court to implement penalties which may be criminal and/or civil (fines, jail time, etc.) for willful disobedience of a court order. However, if some of this conduct is not laid out in the court order, for example, if the order does not require her to inform you of where the children are at all times, then it may be necessary to amend the current order to force her compliance. Very generally, she breaks the law by willfully not adhering to the court order.
what about the fact that i didnt know where they were, i mean had i taken the kids for a visit and not returned them i would have been interferring with custody is this the same for her
