I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

Yes, they would be in big trouble. They would be held in contempt of Court. A bench warrant could be issued against them to come back the state and come in front of the Judge.

In the meantime, you should not wait for the August 28 hearing if your custody/visitation rights have been violated. You need to file Emergency Motion with the Court for return of the kids so that you can have your Court ordered visits with the children.

Goodluck with your case,
