Contempt charges

My DH is going after his ex for contempt of court concerning SD. She did not discuss anything pertaining SD's schooling, health, or anything with DH. Instead of putting DH down as emergency contact at SD's school, she put him down as do not contact (the school is basically not allowed to tell DH anything about SD and if we went to the school he would be escorted off the premises by security). She has not put him down as emergency contact with any of her doctor's (she switches doctors so often that we never know who SD is seeing). 

This is the first time we are taking her back to court since the initial court order was brought up 2 years ago. What can we expect if she is found guilty? Would she get a slap on the wrist or would she loose custody of SD? She has already proven that she is high conflict (she went off on our lawyer in front of the judge when we were having the first set of visitation papers set up).

No idea but he should try and go for him having to know and being primary on everything. I know parents where bitgh have to be contacted and I'd npbe damn sure she couldn't pull that or have say so.

Does he want full custody?

Is that contempt of court?
I would imagine she will be required by the courts to change all of that information.
It is heartbreaking that parents can be such dicks to one another. My ex was similar.
It tends to catch up with them eventually.

No. He just wants to see his kid. The last couple times we have tried to go pick her up she tells us not to bother spending the gas money because she won't be there but we go because she's the type who will say that but then turn around and show up and tell SD that we didn't care enough about her to show up. He wants to involved in her education and health but BM has it down that he isn't to be told anything.

Our lawyer told us that yes that's contempt of court.

What does the current order say regarding this?

If there's a custody order, she doesn't get a choice.

Good luck! I know it will work out in favor of your husband (and of course you and the child)

The current court order states that he is supposed to be put down as emergency contact on everything pertaining to SD's health, education, and extra curricular activities. BM is supposed to consult with DH about anything that pertains to SD (SD was diagnosed ADHD and BM put her on meds without DH even knowing the diagnosis).
