A: I agree with my colleagues. It is unfortunate that you have been placed in this situation. Your best route is to file contempt charges; states honor orders issued in other states with full faith and credit. This means the order does not lose its power or enforceability because mom crossed state lines. You have a solid case, it is best to contact an attorney as soon as possible.

I wish you well for your sake and for the sake of your children.
