Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
.
If the father is not following the order set out by the court with regard to visitation, then your recourse here is to file a "motion for contempt" with the court that put the visitation order in place. That will force him to appear in front of the judge and explain why he is willfully violating the judge's orders regarding visitation. The judge can then penalize him from a verbal reprimand, to fines, to modifying the custody order to give you more custodial time.
