A: Make sure that you understand the terms of your order. Once you do then send her requests in writing and then make sure that you are actually showing up at the specific time and place set out in the order. Get proof that you were there. If possible have a good witness with you. If she does not comply then consult an attorney. 888-343-4529.

A: I would go over your order perhaps with your original attorney and make sure that the mother is abiding by its terms or identify where she is not in compliance. . If you find she is not in compliance you can discuss the possibility of a motion to enforce the order.

A: If the geographic restriction is being violated gather the proof that it is being violated, hire a lawyer to file a motion for contempt/enforcement.

In addition, you should show up for your visitation on the dates and times they were ordered and document that you were there. You can stand by the address of the location and take a selfie with the address in the picture. You can go to a nearby store and buy something and keep the receipt. You can take a credible witness with you. There are many ways to document that you were there.

Also, you mentioned that you cannot see your daughter alone. Based upon that comment I am assuming there is some sort of court ordered restriction on your visitation. You may want to consult with an attorney to discuss a plan of action that may eventually remove that restriction.
