Depending on the actual terms of the decree, possibly. To avoid this, she should have the decree modified so that she will be responsible for being with the children during the applicable times. If there are no other problems, then that might not be too difficult, particularly if the father has no good reason for refusing this.

A family law attorney should be able to help you evaluate this.
