You cannot just decide not to honor the in-place custody and visitation orders. You must go back to court and ask for a modification of those orders based on your new and current information. In fact, the facts you recite here suggest that you may be correct to be concerned, and you may find the court receptive to a significant modification of the orders, but the court will not look favorably on independent disregard of its formal orders. You should see an attorney for assistance in expediting your request of the court for modification of the current visitation and custody arrangements. It is likely that you can get an interim modification, pending a more through consideration of all of the facts and circumstances, in a very short time frame.
My responses to questions on Avvo are never intended as legal advice and must not be relied upon as legal advice. I give legal advice only in the course of an attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions forum does not establish an attorney-client relationship with me. That relationship is established only by individual consultation and execution of a written agreement for legal services.Ask a similar question
File for a modification of the custody order. If there is an emergency you can go "ex parte" and ask the court to make temporary orders or accelerate the schedule (or both).Ask a similar question
