Good morning. Does the order state that the child can only be released to him or that he needs to specifically pick them up? Just curious to see if there is any limiting language in it? Also, what is she actually doing?
I am sorry to hear about what is happening. If the order references him and only him, then he would be required to pick them up. You can object to the her picking them up BUT there is the issue with him not being able to speak with you about the children, so it could make the situation difficult when he comes to get them. Now, you can contact him and advise him of her conduct and ask that either he get them from now on or he speak with her about her allegations and keep this peaceful and just have her pick up the children and leave. If you wanted to, you could always go back to court and modify the order, specifically having him get the children, since she does cause problems and I am inclined to believe, that doing this would cause an inconvenience for him, so he may speak with her about her actions. He could always come back and say you are withholding his visitation and interfering with his time with the children but if he does, you can simply tell him the children are here and waiting for HIM and HE needs to get them
