No. Only a Court can modify the visitation Order.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
without legal custody is there any way they could somehow keep him by obtaining some sort of temporary or emergency custody?
Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 1 year ago.

I am sorry, but I do not understand your follow-up question.

Kindly clarify

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Since there is no legal custody, only physical custody for the child is there anyway they could do something that would allow them to keep the child and not return him at 4pm per the visitation orders?
