    Answered . She is only required to do as any previous order (temp/permanent) instructed. She can only interfere with visitation of an order that is put in place. And to answer your question, no, she couldn't be "charged" as in arrested. But if she is in violation of a court order then certainly motions can be filed etc to let the Judge know of that interference.
