I have not read your decree so I'm merely guessing what your decree states.

I also assume that your ex is looking to hold you in contempt of court.

If it states that you unrelated people of the opposite sex will be in the home with the child while the child is sleeping, then you are violating the order. Being on vacation does not change the fact that you are violating the order.

The judge ordered you to do certain things. You can be held in contempt of court by the judge. I assume it's punishable by fine and/or jail.

I would have your boyfriend stay at a motel.
