Enforcement of visitation rights


#1

Dear dualdraco:

Greetings. You can enforce the agreement through a Motion to Show Cause. My suggestion is that you try to get her to give you a date now when the children can come to France. When she refuses to give you a date, then you should file your motion, so that you can have the issue resolved prior to the date you want them to come for the summer.

Which county do your children live in here in NC?

Dear Janet Fritts,
Thank you for the advice. I spoke with my ex-wife to let her know that I would be contacting my lawyer (now) and the police (if, on the day I pick them up, there are problems), and explained the possible consequences of her breaking the accord. She has changed her stance, or at least said she has, and won’t keep them from seeing me; she was just, “speaking out of anger.” I hold no illusions about the truth in that, and will contact my lawyer just in case. It is distasteful to threaten someone with The Law, but I suppose there is no other recourse sometimes. Thanks again for your succinct advice and an informative website.

Dear dualdraco:

Greetings. Make sure that you back up everything in writing. Writing speaks volumes more than verbal commuication.

My ex-wife and I were divorced two years ago. We have 3 teenage children. In our separation agreement it states, in part, that I have the visitation rights of the children for a minimum of 30 uninterrupted days during their summer vacation, no matter where I live, as long as I pay for the transportation. Last year I moved to France and remarried. They want to come see me of course, but she is telling them that she won’t allow it. If we can’t resolve this issue, who should I contact to enforce the agreement? I should add that I plan on returning to NC to pick them up and then fly back here on a military hop.
Thanks for any advice you can provide.
