If he is violating court orders, the recourse is to file in court for motions to compel and motion for contempt. The court can force his hand and adjudicate the issues.

even if my daughter is behind on child support? can that keep him from letting us see the boys
Family Lawyer: Infolawyer, Lawyer replied 9 months ago

No, the issues are unrelated. He cannot use one against the other.
