You have the right to have your parenting lan enforced thorugh a parenting time enforcement action and/or through contempt. If this is a recurring problem, you should consider terminating joint custody by filing a modification. In difficult cases, a custody or parenting time evaluator can be appointed to assess the best interests of the children. An attorney can also be appointed to represent the children's interests. You should consult with an experienced family law attorney.
