  • Call legal aid in your state or a family law hotline for free legal advice. They can also assist you in filling out and filing the forms.

  • Take the police with you when you go pick up the child. He can be arrested for parental interference if he doesn't give you the child

  • Call your lawyer. You also do not have to pay cs if he's not allowing you to see your child.

  • You need to go to the court in which your visitation rights were ordered and speak to them. Let them know that the father of the child is refusing you your visitation rights. Make sure to contact your lawyer as well, as they will need to know if a court hearing is scheduled. He DOES NOT have a right to refuse you visitation rights, as the court ordered him to allow you those weekends.

  • You don't need an attorney - you can file contempt of court without one. I had to file against my ex-husband several times and never needed an attorney.
