I have joint legal custody with my ex wife of my 5 year old

Customer Question

I have joint legal custody with my ex wife of my 5 year old daughter. She usually calls every day and has for years but I have not heard from her in two days and my exwife is not returning my calls and or texts. I am fairly certain they are okay and my exwife is just doing this to be difficult - is there anything I can do legally to ensure my child's safety or exercise my right to speak with my daughter?

Before I answer a bit more detail would be helpful please.
Is your ex in violation of the custody order?
Is she retaining custody past her time under the order?
Thank you.
