My ex has denied me court ordered visitation days (my birthday 2 weeks ago), moved approximately 40 miles away to a new home (eliminating my midweek visitation), refuses to make a holiday calendar with me but waits until last moment to make arrangements (calendar is ordered) and will not makeup any time missed. How can I get compliance or do I try to modify custody or should I file contempt charges?

Contempt can be used to ask for fines and or punishment but the better remedy would be a motion for enforcement of the existing court order and for orders to recapture any lost time on your parenting plan. If you believe that the move to another area is inappropriate, you can ask the court to consider placement of the children in your care. Please meet with an experienced family law attorney to explore your options.
