A: Harassing phone calls can be a criminal offense. At the same time, your parenting plan requires you to make a good faith effort to work with the other parent to resolve minor disputes ( that is what is BEST for your CHILD). If the plan was changed on 1/17/2019- your ex still has time to appeal the court's decision if he disagrees with what the Judge decided.

Any further appeal would be expensive, so you probably need to try to avoid that. Keep your communications brief and businesslike. If he continues to call excessively, warn him ( verbally and in writing) that it must stop and that he should just abide by the court order. If he won't stop, consider filing the criminal charge, but before taking that drastic action, consult an experienced family law attorney for more specific advice.
