Why did I pay out the butt for a lawyer and court costs ***UPDATE***

Why did I pay a million dollars for a lawyer that doesn't answer his phone ever. And I got a god damn meaning-less piece of paper court order that my ex doesn't follow that I dont even know if I can do anything about because my damn lawyer won't pick up his phone!!!
My court order states my ex can only have visitation at his moms house. It was worded like this in case he ever moved out. Well he moved out and is taking dd to his new place with his roommates and shit and going back to his moms house two minutes before I get dd and my lawyer of course is useless!!! Grrrrr


   Well I spoke with my lawyer and he says to inform ex that out court order says his visits are to be at his mothers house and no where else, that he will be sending out a letter to ex's lawyer yesterday and if he does it again we will file to hold him in contempt. Wish me luck ladies, Ex picks up DD at 4 and DH doesn't get home from work till 5 so i'm on my own. Ex likes to pick fights and be hostile any time we speak. I'm a bit nervous but i need to do this.

Call the police. He can go to jail for being in contempt of the CO.

No, I called him Thursday as Friday and left messages with his front desk because when I found out he moved I knew what he was going to do. I have no Idea where he moved how ever. He won't tell me.

If you have a copy of the order show it to the police and have them wait for him at his mom's house. He will be in contempt of court and can lose visitation.

Can you refuse visitation until this gets cleared up or can he hae visitation at your house?
