Violation of Parenting Plan

Most parenting plans have provisions which allow either parent to temporarily modify timesharing provisions, provided that both parents are in agreement. This allows for the parents to coordinate their schedules. The parents and court anticipates that certain events occur in life that are minor in nature and does not require court intervention. The question then remains what type of actions require a contempt motion.

A Father who tends to mediate situations, talk about it, try to resolve it, was harshly admonished by the Court a few weeks ago for failing to seek court intervention for the Mother's repeated violations of their court ordered parenting plan. It was very difficult for the Court to go back in time to verify whether or not the violations actually occurred, or worse, whether or not the father acquiesced to the violations by not initiating contempt actions. The Court was left with only the "he-said, she-said" testimony regarding behavior that spanned over several years.

It is imperative to create a court record regarding repeated violations. That however does not mean that you should be inflexible and unwilling to compromise in certain situations. As much as the Court needs to know about contemptuous behavior, the Court does not want to play referee regarding every minor incident and change. Instead of wondering whether or not the actions of the other parent are of a nature that requires a contempt action, call us at Solaris Law Group. Our attorneys provide free consultations and will gladly review your parenting plan and discuss your concerns.
