Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. The court order does control and he has a legal right to the children. If he appears and she refuses to release them, then he can call the police and ask them to come to the home to help facilitate this and show them the court order, which allows him to take the children. Now, you hope that the police are willing to get involved but if not, they are going to say this is a civil issue and he needs to proceed through the court. If that happens, he can ask for them to document this and then he would need to file a motion with the court, seeking to hold her in contempt, for violating the court order. Contrary to what the mother things, the children do not have the final say when it comes to visitation
with your brother. They need to go, unless he agrees otherwise. The mother can not interfere with his time and without the children, unless there is a legal basis to support her actions and would come from her believing that they would be harmed or in danger, if left with the mother. Simply "getting in trouble" is not a basis to withhold them or for the kids not wanting to go, so he would need to bring her before the Judge and have her explain her actions and the Judge can enforce the order against you and impose sanctions, as needed.
