It sounds like your ex's failure to comply with the 2009 parenting plan is contempt of court. You should have an experienced attorney review the language of the PP and interview you about the details of this situation. A threat to kill constitutes domestic violence; you should see a DV worker at the county courthouse to discuss your options. Any issue of safety of the children should be reported to CPS. See my AVVO Legal Guides on parenting plans, petitions to modify, contempt and domestic violence for more information about the legal issues raised by your inquiry.
