My former spouse or partner isn’t following the visitation schedule with the kids. What can I do?
If the parent not following the visitation schedule is the parent with primary custody, the parent who is being denied visitation may petition the court for an order enforcing the existing visitation schedule. As part of the request for enforcement, the parent denied visitation my request additional periods of possession. The award of additional possession is at the discretion of the court and should be of the same type and duration as the visitation periods that were denied.
If the parent not following the visitation schedule is the parent who does not have primary custody, there’s little that can be done. In some cases, however, it may be appropriate to ask the court to modify the visitation schedule to reduce the noncomplying parent’s periods of visitation.
