A: No you cannot tell him that the children are not available on his time. You are certainly welcome to ask him to switch weekends with you, but if he does not agree, you cannot deny him his parenting time.

A: I agree with my colleague. You cannot interfere with his weekends or you may be in contempt. If there is something going on that particular weekend you could try speaking to him about it to work it out, but you cannot make the decision to interfere with his weekend. -Homer P.

A: You cannot unilaterally change the schedule, but you and your ex can always agree to change the schedule. You could ask him to switch for a time when he has an event with the kids scheduled on your time.
