If your child’s parent is not honoring the court’s order regarding your custodial or placement rights, the time has come to work with Nelson, Krueger & Millenbach, LLC. Since 1997, our team of knowledgeable attorneys has advocated effectively for the rights of parents throughout Milwaukee and Waukesha. We care deeply about enforcing the court’s order so you can have the time you deserve with your children.
What Should I Do If I Cannot See My Children?
If you have missed visitation with your children because you are having issues getting your child’s parent to comply, try to do the following:
- Document every instance in which your co-parent refuses to obey the placement or custody order
- Continue to pay child support, even if you have not had access to your child
- Enlist the help of the court and family law attorneys to enforce the existing order
Remaining patient while losing precious time with your kids is immensely difficult. However, it is critical that you do not resort to berating their other person, following them or harassing them in any other way. This could backfire and lead to formal penalties against you.
Preparing For The Court Process
If you have evidence to suggest that your co-parent is violating the custody order, the next step is to file a Petition to Enforce Physical Placement. The court will grant you a hearing within 30 days of filing. At this hearing, you need to be prepared to present your evidence to a family law judge to support the allegations in your petition. If your former partner continues to disobey the court order, a judge can issue an order for a variety of remedies including makeup time and a payment towards your attorney’s fees.
