I have been trying to get a hold of my ex since Black Friday in order to cisit with my children. She has not answered my calls nor has she responded to my numerous text requesting to see the kids. Can I file kidnapping charges against her due to this?
You can try. Call the police. Then, call your family attorney or hire one.

No, you can't. This is not kidnapping. You need to consult an attorney about your options.
Take your existing court order, if there is one, to a lawyer. If you don't have an order, see a lawyer about getting one.
