She can file a motion for parenting time assistance and/or contempt for violating the order. She may need to attempt to participate in mediation or other ADR with him if the custody order says it must be attempted first. If she is not comfortable doing this alone, she should consider getting the help of a family law attorney.

Hello. The starting point would be to review the exact wording of the existing court order. I urge you have your friend herself seek private attorney advice at this time, to review the court order, discuss what exactly has been occurring, and decide on the best path or paths of action. Some attorneys, myself included, will confer for free, no charge, initially. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys, myself included, will provide a reduced fee for need. All the best to you and your loved ones.
