Hello. This is Jim and I've been an attorney for over 35 years.

Just so you are aware, JA is only a legal information site. I do not provide representation and no attorney-client relationship is formed. My answers and comments should not be considered legal advice. It is always best to hire a local attorney to review the specifics of your particular case to ensure that a proper review is conducted.

Finally, it's not unusual for me to be handling multiple customer needs simultaneously; there may be a delay of a few minutes in my responses to your replies.

First, though, I need a few minutes to review your question and perhaps get some clarification. In the meantime, you may reply to me at any time if you think of any additional details that may be relevant. Thanks for your patience.

Have you asked and he has refused, or is he just dragging his feet? And if has said no, has he explained why?

Customer
She is with me Monday and Tuesday every week. I'm the custodial parent so I get her on Wednesday as well. Till Wednesday the 1st. So she is supposed to be with me for the entire time. Except for 4 hours tops that her dad would of gotten her. But since she is with me she usually just stays here.

Under those circumstances, after making a written demand on your ex to which he doesn't respond, you can file an emergency motion for contempt with the court. I'm guessing that your order doesn't get very specific about the process of asking for and getting permission; if that's the case, the court will read into the order that both sides will act reasonably in making the order work. Ghosting you is unreasonable. While the judge may not go so far as to find him in contempt, they won't be happy, and they'll get the travel issue squared away.

Customer
Ok so since I asked him over 24 hours ago and he's not answered me I can file that?
Customer
I asked him before the tickets where bought. Now my mom bought them and I'm still not hearing anything from them. How long will this take to get processed?
Customer
It's just happening so quick haha I just want to make sure I have the paperwork ready

24 hours might be a little quick on the trigger. You might want to give it a few days, and a few more tries, in which you make it clear that you're going to have to seek court assistance if he doesn't get back to you.

Customer
Ok so give him warning that steps with the court will be taken if he doesn’t answer me. Got it. Ok thank you
Customer
That would be all
