My Ex is Not Following Parenting Time Orders

A parenting order is a court order that will determine the amount of time that you will spend with your children. If your ex-wife is in violation of the visitation order, or the parenting time order, and makes it difficult for you to see your child in accordance with the terms of the order, then you may have certain legal options. Speak to a Colorado divorce lawyer about what you can do in a situation like this.

If your ex-wife is currently making it difficult for you to spend time with your child in accordance with the child custody order or visitation schedule, then he or she may be in violation of a court order. The parenting time order is mandated by a court, and therefore, any violation of the child custody order is considered contempt of the court. Your ex-wife could face contempt of court proceedings for the violation of the terms of the visitation schedule.

You may not wish to initiate contempt of court proceedings immediately. Speak to a Colorado divorce lawyer about the steps to take to ensure that your rights are protected.

If however, you find that your ex-wife continues to violate the order, then you may need to consider tougher legal action. You can initiate contempt of court proceedings which will involve a lengthy court procedure, and plenty of documentation. The court may issue an order that will force your ex-wife to comply with the terms of the order.

If you are having trouble getting your wife to comply with the terms of the child custody order, discuss your situation with a Colorado divorce lawyer.
