Hello

This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

Unfortunately, the police will not get involved. This is a civil and not a criminal matter. If he does not allow the visit as per the court order, you will need to file a Contempt/Show Cause proceeding in the court that issued the order.

However, if you had a visit and since he is the Primary Custodian Parent and you did not return the child a court order states, then he could call the police and they could intervene as a Parental Kidnapping matter.

If you need to file a contempt proceeding, you can go to the clerk of the court and request the packet of documents to file and you can do that on your own without a local attorney.
