*FAMILY LAW* *FAMILY COURT*
My current FL-341(D) specifies under section 6 (Phone contact between parents and children) that 'and the parents may have telephone access to the children at reasonable times, for reasonable durations. For the last two days I have been texting and calling my ex in an attempt to speak to the children, but there has been no replies or calls back. As is stands, I have no access to the kids. Is this an issue I address in an upcoming hearing several weeks out? Is this an ex parte issue? Do I file for contempt?
If it has only happened for the last two days, it is not an ex parte or contempt issue. If you think there may be something wrong you can always have the police or sheriff's do a welfare check to make sure the children are ok. Certainly you ex not allowing you to have reasonable phone calls is something you can bring up at your hearing. Good luck.
Keep a log of when you attempted to contact the children and received no call back. Obtain your phone records if you are able to do so before the hearing. Contempt of court should be a last resort. Seek more custodial time since she is the parent least likely to allow frequent and continuing contact with the other parent (you).
