My ex-husband has been restricting my children's WIFI access while they are in his care. When doing this, it does not allow my children to communicate with me via their I-pods. The kids have recently told me that dad and step-mom will not allow them to use their cell phones to call me. "You are on my time, you do not need to speak with mom". He does not attempt to communicate with the kids while they are with me, I give the kids full access at any time. The children are 12 years old (twins).
You will want to look at your current court orders to see if there are any orders regarding telephone access during the other parents' time. Often it states "reasonable access" but sometimes there are additional conditions on it. Then you will want to consider what is "reasonable access" and discuss that with the other parent to see if you can come to some agreements regarding when and how long is appropriate given the childrens' age. Good luck to you.
Most judges grant liberal telephone contact, however if the patents cannot agree and their order doesnt address it, going to court starting with mediation is appropriate. Seek a time once a day you can have a uninterupted call with the kids.
