Denying phone access
I need some opinions on a situation we are currently facing. The Court Order in regards to SD5 states that the non-custodial parent (DH) is to have "liberal phone visitation." According to the standards of our state, liberal is not defined, however "reasonable phone visitation" is defined as 2 calls per week and one call per weekend. As of today, DH has called BM for 3 days since we had SD5 this weekend. And he has yet to talk to his daughter.
BM has given DH 3 numbers to contact her with. The first being her home phone. The ringer is not turned on and she doesn't have voicemail or an answering machine. She has caller id and uses that to know when DH has called. The second number and third numbers are her parents' numbers. She stated that if there is an emergency, DH is to call her parents and they will know how to get in touch with her. This is because she refused to give DH her cell phone number. Well, one day she was out and about when we had SD5 in our custody and she wanted to talk to her, so lo and behold, her cell phone number appeared on our caller id. But, even if he calls this number, she NEVER answers and she refuses to set up the voicemail on it. He has no option to leave a message at any of the numbers. DH has her work number and tried to call her there today, but she had the secretary brush him off.
My question to you - have any of you dealt with contempt of court charges in regards to phone access? I will be sending the same information to our attorney tomorrow, but I was just curious how this situation has been handled by others.
