Unfortunately, some parents do not follow the orders set out in the final decree or custody agreement. Instead, they withhold the children from the other parent. If you have been unable to see your children because the other parent has been not complying with a court order, then please call us to help you get access to your children.
When a parent violates the possession and access orders contained in a final divorce decree or a custody agreement, he or she can be held found in contempt of a court order. If an individual is found in contempt for violating a possession or access order, he or she can be placed in jail and/or ordered to pay the other party’s attorney fees. You can also ask the court to give you additional periods of possession and access to the child to make up for the time you were denied access.
