My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Maryland
My ex husband and I are going around and around regarding phone contact with my 5 year old son. I am accostumed to calling every day, however, now my ex feels that this is too much. This week, I have our son for one week summer visitation. His father sent his phone with him, but we have turned the phone off so it does not get lost or broken, but have provided my ex with 3 other numbers at which to reach him. Our son has shown absolutely no interest in talking to his dad, and has been having a blast. He did talk to him Sunday night. His father is now threatening to pick him up early if that particular phone is not turned on. My real suspicion is that he is upset that he is not speaking to our son every day. There is no court order for either of these demands. My question is: if he comes and demands to take my son home early, what rights do I have? Can he take him? Can I then file Contempt of Court charges?
Thank you all so much.
