If the other parent of your child(s) has not followed a court custody decision, you can file an application for contempt. Court orders are enforceable by the contempt of court`s powers. If someone does not comply with the provisions of a court order, they can be brought back to court and punished. If your children`s other parent does not follow the custody plan or violates any of the provisions of the custody order, you can file a contempt petition and have them brought before the courts and punished for not following the order. It is important that you keep an eye on the specific times and dates when the other parent violated the order. Any violation can be made in the application to show the court that the custody order is not being followed. Most custody arrangements also indicate who will make important decisions about children for things like medical care, religious education, and education. This is called custody, which can be shared by the parents or exercised by only one of them. What works for a baby may not work for a toddler or high school student. A child may need different environments to thrive at different stages of their life, making one home more appropriate than another. If you can prove to the court that the child`s needs have changed, you may have reasons to change custody.
In the meantime, if your child is in urgent danger, you should call the police. Then you can work with your lawyer and file a motion to change your custody agreement and protect your child. It is very, very unusual for a parent to be denied contact with their children. A parent who does not have primary physical custody is generally entitled to partial physical custody. As part of a custody agreement or order, parents or the court may limit the custodial parent to moving with the child. For example, an agreement may stipulate that the custodial parent must notify a certain amount of time before moving, or it may prohibit the custodial parent from moving out of the state. Any parent can bring an action for custody in court. Before or after a hearing, the judge may require the parents and the child to attend counselling sessions to try to reach an agreement. The judge may review the consultant`s report to make a decision.
