Legal Question

Asked on: 7/03/13, 6:20 pm

My daughter's father was supposed to pick her up at 6:00 om on July 3rd for the holiday. Normally she would return to me at 10:00 am on the 5th but due to the weekend being his, she was going to be with him until the 7th at 6:00 pm.

He didn't show up tonight at 6:00 pm so I checked in with a police officer and we came home.

Now he is complaining and asking why I didn't contact him. He is demanding a chance to come and get her tomorrow, July 4th, at lunch time.

My question is: if a parent misses the court ordered pick up/drop off time, can I, being the custodial parent, deny the holiday or would this action hold me in contempt?
