If you have tried to resolve your co-parenting issues through other means, such as mediation, and the other parent continues to ignore the court’s instruction, then you can file a lawsuit and ask the court to penalize the other parent for their denial of your parental rights.

One of the most common problems noncustodial parents face is the denial of their parenting time by the custodial parent.  If this is happening to you, there are certain things you must do first in order to file an enforcement lawsuit. 

To enforce your visitation order and ask the court to hold the other parent in contempt, you must follow very specific rules when you try to exercise your visitation.
