Court Order states non-custodial parent (or custodial when visiting non-custodial), can call on specific days at specific times.
The children, have their own cell phone. At times, the children refuse to answer when the non-custodial parent calls. Non-custodial parent is threatening to file for Contempt. What exactly are my responsibilities as the custodial parent in this situation? Can I be held in contempt?
I am encouraging the children to speak with the other parent. Children are in therapy and this is one of things being addressed. I am not in any way preventing them from answering. If I hear the phone ringing, I will tell them they need to answer, but I’m not always with them or not in the same room with them on the designated days and times.
