Your question is difficult to understand, but I am assuming that the paper the judge signed is a show cause order generated by your contempt petition. That means there will be a hearing at which the custodial parent will have to respond to your petition, and the judge will determine if they have in fact violated the order. In the mean time, you are still entitled to whatever visitation the existing order provides you.
